(WKBW/CNN) Here's some food for thought. Too much processed food at a young age may lower a person's IQ.

Researchers in Britain tracked what thousands of kids ate and drank at the ages of three, four, seven and eight-and-a-half.

They found when a three-year-old ate a lot of fatty, sugary, processed foods, their IQ was lower at the age of eight, but, the scientists didn't find the same correlation in kids aged four and seven.

Doctors say this study is something to keep in mind, when feeding your toddler!
