Eating Healthy While Studying – Why What You Put In, Affects What You Get Out
We often remind you that good study habits are key to success in school, college and university. A healthy diet supports your studies by helping you concentrate.
Did you know that you can improve your academic potential by eating certain foods and following particular eating patterns for their brain-boosting benefits?
Meeting your daily vitamin and mineral requirements will make doing your best much easier. Iron and B vitamins are especially important to maintaining the physical and mental energy necessary to concentrate. Keep an eye on your diet and ensure that you include all 5 food groups in your diet:
- Peanut butter sandwich on whole wheat bread – This simple sandwich provides protein, whole grains, and healthy fats.
- Piece of whole fruit – We suggest eating an apple or banana as the healthiest option, but there are so many others including oranges, grapes, strawberries and pears.
- Carrots and hummus – That crunch is oh so satisfying! Other veggies like bell peppers and cucumber slices are great with hummus too.
- Cheese and cherry tomatoes – Cheese can be a good source of calcium, protein, and other important nutrients.
