Oily fish makes for smart babies?

Previous studies have suggested that kids do better in school when they've been eating more fish, especially oily fish rich in the essential fatty acid Omega-3.

Now, another study suggests that this brain-boosting effect is also conferred on children while still in the womb. In other words, pregnant mothers who eat plenty of Omega-3-rich fish give birth to babies who grow up to do better in the classroom.
