Quick Summary

In this cross-sectional study, children who consumed fruit or fruit juice every day appeared to have higher macular pigment optical density in comparison with children who did not, but the evidence is preliminary.

What was studied?

The role of diet, lifestyle, and body composition on macular pigment optical density (MPOD) among children.

MPOD was measured using photometry. The intake of fruit, oils, grain, dairy, and sugary food was assessed using a validated Mediterranean diet scale (KIDMED). Physical activity and screen exposure times were assessed using questionnaires. Height and weight were assessed to calculate BMIs.
