Kate Humble always chooses to "support good farming practice".

The 50-year-old BBC presenter has opened up about her diet and revealed that she liked to know where her "food comes from" and "eat responsibly" because it is an "important" part of living a sustainable lifestyle.

Speaking exclusively to BANG Showbiz, Kate said: "I think the most important thing is to eat responsibly, know as much as possible about where your food comes from and support good farming practice.

"Across the board people can be aggressive, there are certainly very aggressive carnivore point of views as well. For me, supporting good farming practice, paying properly for the food that we eat and understanding where our food comes from, how it's produced and supporting the people who work so hard to produce the food for our table, be it vegetables or meat, is by far the most important thing."

And Kate admitted that she tries to not buy too much food because then she doesn't doesn't throw it away and cause unnecessary waste.

He added: "Being responsible for what we eat, for not wasting food, for not buying too much food, for not going for the cheapest option is actually a way that will contribute far more, in my view, will contribute far more to sustainably keeping the human population fed."

This news comes as a study has shown that four in five Brits say that birdsong makes them happier, and 77 per cent say listening to birds singing helps them to relax.

Kate has subsequently teamed up with the intu Trafford Centre for their 12-foot "tweet tree", which features ten of Britain's greatest songbirds including the blackbird, nightingale, robin and wren.

The 10-minute track was created by BAFTA-winning ambient music producer Laurence Love Greed and will be available for shoppers to listen to at intu shopping centres nationwide throughout the month of May.

Kate said: "I am fortunate enough that I wake up to the sound of birdsong most mornings. Scientific studies undertaken last year demonstrated that contact with nature - trees, seeing the sky, listening to birds singing - has a hugely beneficial impact on our mental wellbeing.

"So many people shut out the natural sounds around them by wearing headphones to listen to music or podcasts, but they are denying themselves the wonderful effects nature can have on our mental health. So I love this initiative from intu to reconnect millions of people with the wonder of birdsong, the most beautiful & beneficial music of all!"

Kate was speaking at the launch of a new initiative by intu to reconnect people with nature.
