Scientist, people have landed with a new scientific study and this time, they has suggested that children who eat chicken off the boneare more likely to act rowdily than those who eat pre-cut chicken.
The study of 12 children aged six to ten was carried out by diet experts in an attempt to determine whether food impacts on our behaviour.
The researchers claimed that the results of the study supported their claims about aggression – and they reckon getting kids to behave better could be as simple as swapping a chicken leg for smaller pieces of food.
They advised parents to take caution when deciding what to serve up to their children for supper.
“Since biting food appears to increase activity level, aggression and noncompliance, It may not be wise to serve young children chicken wings shortly before bedtime,” they said.
But a clinical psychologist blasted the claims.
Dr Brian Russell, speaking to Fox News, said: “I put absolutely zero chicken stock in this study .
“I think people have been eating chicken wings and chicken drumsticks for a millennium and I don’t think it’s made them any more aggressive than they otherwise would have been.”
