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.
