Fast food meals linked to lower IQ

Press Association - October 4, 2012

Children given more fast food meals will grow up to have a lower IQ than those regularly given freshly-cooked meals, a study has revealed.

According to new research, childhood nutrition has long lasting effects on IQ, even after previous intelligence and socio-economic status are taken into account.

The study at Goldsmiths, University of London, examined whether the type of children's daily main meal had an impact on their cognitive ability and growth.
