A recent investigation into the effects of diet and exercise on children's thinking was published in the Scandinavian Journal of Medicine & Science in Sports.
Children who read and play sports more often than not have stronger cognitive skills than those who don't.
Additionally, they discovered that children who consumed less red meat and low-fat milk had superior cognitive abilities than those who did not.
A recent Finnish study found that children who participate in organized sports and spend less time on the computer are smarter.
The study, which was just released in the Scandinavian Journal of Medicine & Science in Sports,
looked at 504 elementary school pupils over the course of two years to examine the impacts of nutrition and exercise.
Researchers discovered that kids with stronger thinking skills than those without it spent more time reading and participating on supervised organized sports teams.
Researchers also discovered that children's ability to think clearly decreased as they spent more time on the computer unsupervised.
