3.5-ounce serving of vanilla ice cream contains 125 calories, 7 grams of fat, and 14 grams of sugar. Fourteen grams of sugar is likely to trigger a blood-sugar high in the brain followed by a corresponding blood-sugar low—because what goes up must come down. This pushes the brain to try and reverse the blood-sugar low. It may grab a snack (e.g., donut, sweet roll, sugary drink, or candy bar). A roller-coaster of blood sugar levels are not unhelpful for overall and long-term brain function. By all means eat breakfast and boot up your brain. Choose healthier carbs for your brain.
