Eating Ice Cream For Breakfast May Improve Mental Performance And Alertness, Study Says
Study participants were also found to have increased brain function after drinking cold water immediately after waking up, but levels were much higher for those who had ice cream.
Most parents would consider it a crime to give a child ice cream for breakfast. But they might rethink allowing their kids to have a scoop of the cold, sweet treat first thing in the morning, if they knew it could make them smarter. Although an early morning sugar rush may be parents and teachers worst fears, a new study recently found eating ice cream first thing in the morning can actually be beneficial for the brain. The study, published by Kyorin University professor Yoshihiko Koga, said eating ice cream right after waking up can result in improved instances of alertness and mental performance.
