As per the study done by Dr Lisa Smithers (Paediatric Surgeon), students who eat junk food when they are toddler have lesser IQ than those who eat fresh food such as fruits, vegetables, and milk. These changes can be observed in a child when they reach the age of eight years.
Now students have a reason to add super food in their diet. Also drink 8 to 10 glasses of water a day. It will help to reduce dehydration, which can affect you mentally and physically.
