Eat your greens, grow your intellect?

Well, for decade’s we’ve been telling our kids to eat their greens, because we all know that a good diet is an important part of a healthy lifestyle.

But the food your kids eat not only adds to a healthy body, but also a healthy mind.

A study led by University of Adelaide has found links between the diet of 6, 15 and 24 month old children and their IQ at age 8.

Tim Brunero spoke to Public Health Researcher, Dr. Lisa Smithers.

One response to “Eat your greens, grow your intellect?

  1. Right on. I remember discussing a study with a doctor I worked with once which showed in studies of children on a regular American diet, there was already aterial plaque build up and relatively high cholesterol levels at age 11. Thanks, McDonalds!
