New research shows breastfeeding may help make kids smarter.

In a study from Great Britain, children who were breastfed as babies had higher scores on vocabulary and reasoning tests at age five.

Researchers aren't exactly sure why breastfeeding may boost brainpower, but they say fatty acids in breast milk are good for brain development.

Still, they can't prove it was definitely breastfeeding that caused improved cognition.
