During exams, students need to eat right and are required to take vitamins which enable them to perform well.
Given below, some tips on what food to eat during exams to keep you fit and get going.
Iron and B vitamins are essential to keep both physical and mental energy of a body to study well. Good source of iron are red meat, cereal and spinach, and food that contains B vitamins are whole-grain, wheat germ, eggs and nuts. Fish and soy are other food that helps in boosting your brain by providing required nutrients.
Taking dietary supplement is good, but real food is better. So keep handy of fruits such as apples, bananas, oranges, carrot sticks or dried apricots which contain vitamins, fibre, beta carotene and other essential minerals.
Eating regular meals helps keeping nutrients and energy levels more stable, rather than taking the standard 3 big meals a day which will make you slow physically and mentally.
Take your breakfast everyday as its one of the most important meal of the day. A cup of tea and biscuits are not the right bite, the idea is to get some protein, fibre, calcium, fruits or vegetables. A bowl of cereal with milk or yogurt with slices of fruits would do wonders.
Blueberries are good for brains, because they contain powerful antioxidants and other nutrients. The natural sugars in fruit offer clean energy, so you don’t experience the crash that follows consumption of refined sugar.
All vegetables are not created equal; take the vegies which are darker in colour as they contain higher concentration of nutrients. E.g. spinach, bell peppers, broccoli, and sweet potatoes.
