Your teenagers may have heard about a study at Kyorin University in Tokyo, Japan. A professor studied the impact of ice cream—first thing in the morning—and the brain. According to the Abstract, researchers gave participants three spoonful’s (it did not specify the size of the spoons) first thing in the morning. The participants then were asked to do a series of exercises on a computer. Those who ate the ice cream were better able to process the information and had a faster reaction time as compared with those who had not eaten anything in the morning. My brain’s opinion is the key relates to three spoonful’s of ice cream versus nothing. More tomorrow.
