How to eat healthy before standardized tests
WEDNESDAY, OCTOBER 27, 2010 18:35 PM

Nutrition is an important part of everyday life, but some individuals may need some extra nourishment before submitting themselves to vigorous exam on standardized tests. Students who are looking to keep their brain powered on testing days should try and eat healthy meals, as this practice may be able to help them stay motivated.

Some nutritionists suggest that it's best to fill up on protein-rich meals in order to provide energy for an exam. Foods such as eggs, nuts, yogurt and cottage cheese can be options for breakfast before students leave to take the standardized tests.

Additionally, although eating protein is important, it may be a good idea to stay away from heavy meals, as this can cause people to grow drowsy, potentially making them lose focus on the test at hand.

There should also be some balance when eating, as students should try to stay away from junk food, but at the same time make sure not to skimp on eating, as hunger could be a cause for distraction during the test.
