[Source: Medical News Today]
Researchers found that children aged 9–11 years who ate fish at least once weekly had higher IQ test scores and better sleep quality, compared with children who consumed fish less frequently.
Study co-author Jianghong Liu, of the School of Nursing at Pennsylvania State University (Penn State) in State College, and colleagues recently reported their findings in the journal Scientific Reports.
Fish is considered an important part of a healthful diet. Not only is it low in saturated fat and rich in protein, vitamins, and minerals, but fish is also a good source of omega-3 fatty acids.
