Leafy greens are linked to children doing better in school

Children should increase their consumption of broccoli because it can improve their academic performance, a new study claims.

A pigment found in leafy greens, egg yolks and broccoli has been found to increase a child's overall brain health, especially during tests.

New research found that high levels of lutein helped children in school perform tasks better and more easily, regardless of their IQ or other factors.

Experts are now encouraging children and adults to eat more foods that contain lutein in order to achieve this brain power boost.

Lutein is also important in older people for maintaining eye health, low light sight and avoiding macular degeneration.
