Methods: Data from national census or registries with mortality follow-up, EU-SILC, and ESS were used in two scenarios to calculate the impact: the upward levelling scenario (exposure in low educated equals exposure in high educated) and the elimination scenario (no exposure in both groups). Results are estimated for men and women between ages 35 and 79 years. Results: Varying by country, upward levelling reduced inequalities in DFLE by 0.1–1.1 years (1–10{\%}) in males, and by 0.0–1.3 years (0–18{\%}) in females. Eliminating exposure reduced inequalities in DFLE between 0.6 and 1.7 years for males (6–15{\%}), and between 0.1 years and 1.8 years for females (3–20{\%}). Conclusions: Upward levelling of fruit and vegetable consumption would have a small, positive effect on both TLE and DFLE, and could potentially reduce inequalities in TLE and DFLE.",
