Your nutrition advice

Make sure you eat - The first rule when it comes to nutrition during your exam periods is to make sure you eat. A lot of people skip food when they have exams because they feel too nervous. This is understandable, but it is not advisable. In basic terms, you need to eat in order for your brain to work efficiently. You need to keep your mental focus, and this is something you are going to struggle to do if you have not eaten.

Eat light meals - Although you do need to eat, you are recommended to keep it light. You will feel heavy and drowsy if you eat a big breakfast pre-exam.

Stay away from brain-blocking foods for breakfast - When it comes to being as efficient as possible for your exams, you will want to stay away from foods that block the brain. This includes foods that are high in refined sugar, for example, candies, desserts, and chocolate, as well as foods with white flour, for instance, muffins, cakes, and cookies. It is also not recommended to have turkey on the day of your exam. This is because it contains an amino acid that will make you feel sleepy. 

Choose brain-boosting foods for breakfast - There are lots of good and healthy food choices for your breakfast on the morning of your exams. You should consider the likes of sugar-free muesli, oatmeal, eggs and toast with jam, low-fat milk and whole-grain cereal, as well as the likes of prunes, figs, dried fruits, flaxseed, sunflower seeds, walnuts, blueberries, and fish.
