Ditching the diets for health

It could be the swine flu panic or perhaps the healthy eating message is finally getting in as research from the Florida Department of Citrus finds that women have started ditching the diet and eating to boost the immune system instead.

Whilst 85 per cent of men are now counting calories, 85 per cent of women are buying ‘super fruits’ packed with vitamins to help ward off illness.

The message is also getting into mums with 54 per cent of tired working mums ditching their leisure time to cook meals from scratch giving their children a more balanced diet.
