Don’t let the kids read this but a Japanese professor Yoshihiko Koga has conducted a study on the benefits of eating certain foods for breakfast!
In his study, half the participants ate ice cream for breakfast and then all participants completed a series of mental task, and it was found that those who had eaten ice cream had faster reaction times than those who hadn’t.
Yoshihiko was surprised by the results and repeated the test with ice cold water to see how it compared to those who’d had ice cream. He discovered that those who drank water did perform better, it was nowhere near as well as those who had eaten ice cream.
Yoshihiko hasn’t yet discovered why eating ice cream boosts your brain functions but it is believed that ice cream stimulates the pleasure centres in your brain which makes you more alert and able to concentrate.
I’m sure my kids will be the first to volunteer to try this out here! Any excuse to have ice cream and for breakfast too!
What do you think?
