Study: Kids Who Eat Breakfast Get Higher Test Scores

Updated:

A new study shows just how important breakfast is for children's brains.

A new analysis from a hunger advocacy group shows kids who eat a school breakfast have more than 17 percent higher scores on standardized math tests.

They also miss less school, which experts say means they're more likely to graduate high school.

Advocates say these higher test scores and graduation rates can help ensure kids have a brighter future.

 


A new study shows pregnant women suffering from serious morning sickness can safely take one anti-nausea drug.

 

The drug is called Zofran, and researchers in Denmark found it will not cause birth defects if pregnant women take it.

About 10 percent of women suffer from extreme morning sickness and don't take medication because of fears the drugs will harm their babies.

Researchers say pregnant women with severe nausea should consider taking medication since they lose nutrition for themselves and the baby if they're throwing up frequently.
