We all know eating healthy at any age is a good idea but a new study shows there may be added benefits for the little ones.

The study's findings suggest too much processed food may even lower IQ scores in young children.

Researches with the journalĀ Community Health studied the eating habits of 4,000 kids at age 3 and they were tested five years later.

The study found those who ate highly processed foods had lower IQ scores.

Those who ate whole foods scored almost two points higher.
