Kids Who Eat Fish Are Smarter

In the final episode of season two of "The Sopranos," Tony finds a "wire" at Salvatore "Big Pussy" Bonpensiero's house (which means that Big Pussy has been talking to the Feds).

Tony, Paulie, and Silvio take him for a ride in Tony's new boat, and Big Pussy ends up, you guessed it, sleeping with the fishes.

Sleeping because of the fishes is what's behind a much more positive new study from the University of Pennsylvania.

Researchers report that 9-to-11-year-old Chinese children who eat fish at least once a week sleep better and have IQ scores 4 points higher than kids who eat little or no fish.

That's great, but how do you get American kids to eat fish?

Last week we reported that moms-to-be who ate vegetables while pregnant passed along a propensity for their kids to enjoy vegetables. The same goes for fish. Researchers say it's the omega-3s in the fish that's the real brain starter.

A nice tuna salad or an oven-fried salmon filet sandwich could do the trick.

However, if that doesn't work, an added supplement of DHA omega-3 algal oil might have the same effect, even though no supplements were cited in the Penn study. Those supplements are known to help improve eyesight too.

So whichever you choose, it's important to try, so your child will sleep better and be more attentive in school.
