A new study finds that fish oil may enhance your child’s intelligence.
Researchers at New York University found that you can help your child get smarter by adding omega-3 to their diet in addition to enrolling them into a preschool or early learning program while engaging in one-on-one reading activities.
The analysis, which was recently published in Perspective on Psychological Science examined several child learning studies tying the three methods together. Researchers also discovered that some previously popular supplements may not actually put your child’s IQ ahead of the class such as multivitamins and music.
However, many parents are finding the IQ test to be simply one-dimensional since it does not measure other levels of intelligence such as emotional or moral intelligence. Critics are also calling into question research methods used in reviewing previous studies as well as whether their IQ level lasts into adulthood.
