A new survey of over 700 gifted young people by the University of Warwick shows that they consider themselves bright enough to take responsibility for their food choices and don't think that schools should be allowed to dictate their diet.
A poll of students at the National Academy for Gifted and Talented Youth found that 68.7%of the students questioned thought schools should not be able to dictate their diet and 100% of those asked said they would choose the healthy option and were aware of the hazards of a junk food diet. 770 students replied to the poll.
