The four-month study involved 450 children, aged eight to 10, across a range of social classes at 17 schools in Newport, south Wales.

Professor Amanda Kirby, who led the study at the University of Wales, said: "The fact we saw some changes in children's behaviour and learning is significant and we need to understand more."
