Got Fish?

Does your kid eat fish? He or she should!

According to a recent study in the journal Scientific Reports, kids who enjoy fish at least once a week score higher on IQ tests and have better quality sleep than kids who never or rarely eat fish. In the study, more than 500 children whose parents said they ate fish weekly were analyzed. The fish-eating youngsters scored about 4.8 points higher on the same IQ tests than the kids who didn’t or rarely ate fish. Turns out there is a connection between omega-3s (the essential fatty acids found in many types of fish) and increased intelligence and sleep. Say no more—fresh salmon is what’s for dinner!
