The consumption of excess sugar has long been linked to a number of health problems like cancer, diabetes, and obesity, and now a new study has revealed it can affect childhood cognition.

The research, published in the American Journal of Preventive Medicine, examined the side effects of consuming large quantities of sugary food and drinks. The study focused on the cognitive development of children whose mothers ate too much sugary foods during pregnancy.

It was revealed that there is a possibility that the consumption of excess sugar could be the reasoning behind poor childhood cognition. According to the study, children whose mothers consumed larger quantities of sugar during their pregnancies were born with impaired cognitive abilities and speech functions.

The study also confirmed that consuming fruits and foods that contain natural fructose helped improve childhood cognition and children who regularly ate fresh fruits had better cognitive scores.

Dr. Rhonda Patrick said, “Maternal sugar consumption, particularly from sugar-sweetened beverages, was associated with poorer childhood cognition including non-verbal abilities to solve novel problems, poorer verbal memory, poorer fine motor, and poorer visual-spatial/visual-motor abilities in childhood.”

Pregnant women are encouraged to stay away from sugar and artificial sweeteners to ensure their children can properly develop their cognitive abilities.
