A new study has suggested that children are likely to be more aggressive if they eat chicken off the bone, as opposed to pre-cut chicken.

The scientific study was carried out by diet experts on 12 children, aged six to ten, in order to see how food affects behavior, if it does at all. The researchers said that the results of the study supported their claims, and advised parents to be careful about what they serve their children.

"Since biting food appears to increase activity level, aggression and noncompliance, it may not be wise to serve young children chicken wings shortly before bedtime."

However, clinical psychologist Dr Brian Russell disagrees, telling Fox News, "I put absolutely zero chicken stock in this study. I think people have been eating chicken wings and chicken drumsticks for a millennium and I don’t think it’s made them any more aggressive than they otherwise would have been."
