How a raisin could predict your child's IQ

Find out how a simple raisin could predict your child's intelligence

Raisins

Putting a raisin under a cup and warning a toddler not to eat it until they're told to do so could predict how smart they'll be.

Apparently most tots will fail this test (d'oh), but having enough self-discipline to wait for a whole minute could be the signs of a child genius. A study has concluded that by the age of eight the toddlers who resist temptation will have an IQ seven points higher than those who didn't.

It tests attention span and learning capacity and can be done with any food, and can even be used to identify children at risk of attention and learning problems.

Better inhibitions at 20 months predicted better attention regulation and academic achievement at age eight. Although they did add that results may be different if parents do the test at home.
