Chew on this! Healthy eating and studying
Every parent knows that there is an unexplainable connection between study time and the amount of snacks consumed in the average home. It seems that the closer we creep to exam time, the more time the students in the house spend inventing new creations to feast on whilst preparing for exams.
The trouble is most students’ regular study snacks include lots of sugar, preservatives and saturated fats. Not necessarily a recipe for success. We’re all familiar with the old saying "What you put in is what you get out.”, but maybe it’s time to explore exactly what this means when it comes to your body and what you eat.
According to the Society for Neuroscience, recent studies reveal that diets with high levels of saturated fats actually impair learning and memory. Sadly, many convenience foods that are both affordable and easy to fit onto a busy schedule fall into this category.
