Healthy Diet Tied to Improved Reading Skills in Youths

Healthy diet tied to improved reading skills in youths

Finnish researchers found that children who mostly ate fruits, vegetables, fish, whole grains and unsaturated fats had more improved reading skills from first grade to third grade regardless of reading ability at baseline, compared with those whose diets had more sugary foods and red meat. The findings in the European Journal of Nutrition were based on data involving 161 youths in Finland, ages 6 to 8.
