Hands up if you spent your student years living off baked beans and two-minute-noodles.

If you were (or still are) a frequent indulger in these gastro delights then it’s time to get scoffing some fruit.

A study of 811 Brisbane students has shown that living on baked beans and instant-noodles puts you at greater risk of developing chronic diseases like diabetes, cancer and heart disease.

Researchers said that cash-strapped university students prioritise university fees, accommodation and bills over “discretionary expenses” such as food.

Well that’s pretty much how we remember Uni. Booze = essential, food = discretionary.

Must. Eat. An. Apple.
