Background. In an ageing society cognitive decline is expected to become an important health problem. Previous studies showed that a healthy lifestyle, i.e. sufficient physical activity and a healthy diet,can benefit cognitive function. In this study, we aimed to assess the (synergistic) association of physical activity and a healthy diet with cognitive functioning in 1,741 Dutch men and women aged 57-97 years.
