Children who consume more fast food grow up to having a lower IQ than those who regularly eat freshly-cooked meals, said nutrition expert Dr Zahra Soleimani. “Fast foods have lower nutrition value including less vitamins, minerals, and other essential nutrients, and children who consume junk food grow less smart as they get older,” she told ISNA. “The type of food we eat affects brain development and kids who are under-nourished in childhood will suffer the same problem during adolescence and youth,” she said, urging parents to keep children away from fast food and encourage consumption of healthy food.
