- Synonyms Vigorous, hearty, robust, strong; Healthy, Healthful, Wholesome, Salubrious, Salutary. A distinction between healthy and healthful is nearly established. Healthy is applicable to the condition of body or mind; healthful to that which produces health. Wholesome is sometimes preferred to healthful on the ground of euphony, but commonly applies chiefly to food, as salubrious applies chiefly to air, climate, and the like. Salutary has mainly a moral significance: as, a salutary effect; salutary influence. Healthy and wholesome are often used figuratively; the others are not.
