5 Nutrition Strategies for this Exam Season

Exams can be a stressful time for children. During exams, children usually put their other hobbies and interests on a standstill and focus all their attention on their books. It is paramount to ensure that their diet isn’t ignored too, and that it is given as much importance as their studies.

If children do not get the nourishment they require to remain healthy, they are bound to fall sick and will not be able to concentrate on their studies. Thus, a well-balanced diet is essential during the exam season.

Here are a few nutrition strategies that children must follow during exam time:

  1. Stay hydrated

Sometimes in the chaos of exams, one may fail to meet their regular water intake. However, water is very important in order to make sure your brain functions properly. Considering the fact that our body is 60% water, it is no surprise to know that dehydration affects the brain. It is essential that you drink at least 1.5 to 2 litres of water a day as your body needs this minimum quantity for optimal functioning. If you notice that you’re feeling very lethargic or tired while studying, one of the reasons behind this may be the lack of water in your body. So, drink up!

  1. Munching while studying can be beneficial

To avoid losing focus while studying, it would be wise to keep snacks within an arm’s reach. When we talk about snacks, we do not mean unhealthy, processed foods but healthy snacking options like almonds, walnuts, berries, seeds, fruits and more.

  1. Eating in periodic intervals

Dietitians suggest that eating every 2 hours is ideal. This way your hunger doesn’t get in your way while studying, and your body is equipped to deal with the rigors of exam season.

  1. Importance of Breakfast

Mornings are a great time to study as you are most energetic and fresh at that time of the day, but you have to make time for breakfast as it is the food that you eat in this meal that will help you out later on while studying and give you the energy you are looking for. Foods most recommended for breakfast are eggs, dairy products, nuts, seeds, etc. as these foods are rich in calcium, protein, vitamins, iron and other nutrients.

  1. Avoid processed foods

Processed foods should be avoided completely as not only are they are unhealthy for the body, but also, they are known to cause laziness and low immunity in children. Children must remain healthy during exams to keep up with the stress. This stress can be balanced out with healthy eating habits in order to keep their immunity up. Meals with the family are encouraged as it has been proven that when a child is close to their love ones, their stress level automatically decreases. Meals must do justice to every food group in the food pyramid and should be eaten in moderate portions.

Following these nutritional strategies, it will be possible to retain sufficient energy, concentration and focus to keep up with the rigours of the exam season.

It’s true that healthy lifestyle is the key to leading a healthy life in the future, but there’s no taking away from the fact that timely check-ups are just as important in ensuring our well-being in the long run. At Apollo Diagnostics, we offer free home collection facilities making health check-up convenient than ever before. To book an appointment, call 44442424 or visit
