HOW TO EAT WHEN YOU ARE STUDYING AND ELSEWHERE TOO

Embrace the cliché and make breakfast the most important meal of the day, filling up on energy-giving oats and also eggs , which contain a nutrient called choline, thought to help cognitive performance and improve memory as we age.

For lunch, eat foods with a low glycemic index (vegetables, wholemeal spaghettis, beans, peas etc) to keep you going until dinner.

For your last meal of the day, make the most of oily fish, especially salmon . The clever swimmers are a great source of omega-3, an essential fatty-acid, with many health benefits and are believed to help brain funtion. Not a fish fan? Try flaxseeds, believed to be the best vegetarian source of omega-3.

For Energy eat healthy snacks, packed with wholefoods like dried fruit nuggets and melon bran pots or, if you can’t close your books for long enough to cook, snack on blueberries, blackcurrants and other berries, all full of vitamin C, which is thought to help improve mental agility. Vitmain E and zinc are also thought to have a positive impact on the brain so have a helping of pumpkin seeds and walnuts on hand next time hunger strikes.
