Children who eat seafood regularly have a 5 point higher IQ than their counterparts whose diets are seafood sparse.
Jiang-hong Liu, the lead author of the new study conducted by the University of Pennsylvania School of Nursing, writes that 9-11-year-old boys and girls who regularly eat plenty of seafood scored 4.8 points higher on the Wechsler Intelligence Scale IQ test.
These kids also sleep better too according to the study.
The trick, of course, is to get 9-11-year-olds to eat seafood, that is rich in omega-3s and tastes great. “That trick is best accomplished by serving up fresh seafood, right out of the water”, says Mike Spindler who heads up FultonFishMarket.com, the largest online, fresh seafood store which delivers directly to your door.
“Most kids only experience heavily processed seafood from fast food locations or supermarkets, or seafood in sit down restaurants which all too often serve seafood frozen at least once.” Says Spindler, “Fresh seafood is simple to prepare, tastes brilliant and provides an amazing array of health benefits including important brain health. Many studies have been done over the last 5 years reporting on the critical role food plays in overall health and in brain health in particular. This latest study extends these prior findings to understand how important a diet grounded in seafood proteins can be for kid's health.”
