Kids who eat meat are smarter

From the The European Journal of Epidemiology

Some evidence exists to suggest there may be an association between childhood nutrition and cognitive function, although this is largely limited to studies on young children, where animal protein intake has been positively associated with earlier walking in infants and dietary supplementation with meat in infants and children in developing countries associated with better cognitive function up to school age, independent of iron status. Protein energy supplementation from non-meat sources (vegetables, milk and sugar) given from birth to 24 months in developing populations has been positively associated with cognitive function in early adulthood (mean age 32 years), especially in women.
