Children with a healthy food intake during the early years of life have a better verbal and nonverbal ability at the age of 10 compared to other children, according to an Australian longitudinal study of 2869 children and their families. Moreover, the study showed that soft drink consumption had a negative effect on neurocognitive development while increased fruit intake had a positive effect.
