Children brought up on healthy diets are more intelligent compared with their junk food eating counterparts, new research suggests
Toddlers fed a diet packed high in fats, sugars, and processed foods had lower IQs than those fed pasta, salads and fruit, it was found.
The effect is so great that researchers from the University of Bristol said those children with a “healthier” diet may get an IQ boost. Scientists stressed good diet was vital in a child’s early life as the brain grows at its fastest rate during the first three years of life.
This indicated head growth at this time is linked to intellectual ability and “it is possible that good nutrition during this period may encourage optimal brain growth”.
