Chocolate. It’s often the way to a mother’s heart. And studies show that eating more of it may actually be beneficial. A study suggests that eating chocolate, preferably organic chocolate with at least 72% cacao, can boost vision and spatial memory in both young and older patients.

A different study, published in 2011 in the British Medical Journal, found that eating chocolate cut the risk of various cardiovascular diseases by a third, and other studies have shown a relation between eating chocolate and lowered blood pressure, improved blood vessel health, and a better ability to regulate blood sugar.
