Sagar Mahendrabhai Bhinde, Abhishek Patalia, Sunil Joshi.

Abstract
Introduction: An intelligence quotient (IQ) is a score derived from a set of standardized tests developed to measure a person's cognitive abilities in relation to their age group. In Ayurveda it could be considered under the heading of “Medha” which means to have proper correlation and understanding about the knowledge of the existing objects. In present competitive world, children are always forced to get 1st rank in their class by their parents. Even many parents are ready to purchase supplements for their children to “enhance memory” or as “I.Q. Booster” to prepare them for the exams. But due to many quack manufacturers in market, many of time children could not get enough benefit.
Objectives: Actually the life style related factors, which are affecting the level of IQ are ignored many of time. So this paper is aimed to explore the factors which affect the IQ in children. Material and Methods: Total 22 children were selected for this study. They were examined thoroughly to find out the specific factors and then IQ score were obtained with the help of “Indian Adaptation of Wechsler’s Intelligence Scale for school children-IV”.
