University of New Hampshire Explains How Healthy Eating Has More Benefits Than You Think

 

We all know eating healthy is good for your body, but did you know that it also impacts your brain?

University of New Hampshire Extension links healthy eating to better reading skills in youth from a study in the Journal of Nutrition by researchers in Finland. Children who follow a healthy diet generally had higher test scores in reading than their peers who did not follow a healthy diet.

The Extension recommends promoting healthy meals for your children and limiting processed foods. Their body – and their brain – will thank you.

The diet included more fruits, fish, veggies, whole grains, and unsaturated fats – read more about the study here.
