If children are being fed a healthy diet, including fruits and vegetables, during their initial years of their growth then they grow up having a high IQ level. A study was carried out in which it has been found that quality of diet in initial two years of child's life have a great impact on his IQ level.
In order to prove the same, the study researchers from the University of Adelaide, Australia, assessed the eating habits of more than 7,000 children. Children were assessed for their eating habits at three different levels.
Firstly, when they were six months old, second time of assessment was when then they turned 15 months old and last time of evaluation was when they turned two years old. A data was prepared of the tests and a final test of IQ was taken when children turned eight years old.
It was being revealed that children, who have a healthy diet and have been breastfed for at least six months were having two points higher IQ level than children, who were fed on candy and poor diet. "Diet supplies the nutrients needed for the development of brain tissues in the first two years of life", said Dr Smithers.
