“Diet supplies the nutrients needed for the development of brain tissues in the first two years of life, and the aim of this study was to look at what impact diet would have on children’s IQs,” said study leader, Lisa Smithers, a public health researcher at the University of Adelaide.
“While the differences in IQ are not huge, this study provides some of the strongest evidence to date that dietary patterns from six to 24 months have a small but significant effect on IQ at eight years of age. It is important that we consider the longer-term impact of the foods we feed our children.”
The study’s findings are not definitive, and the researchers acknowledge that other, unknown factors may also have caused or contributed to the difference in IQ. Researchers also admitted that the IQ spread among the control groups was clinically significant, but not very large.
