Brain Food and Study Snacks

By Elizabeth Jarrard, Dietetics Student, Sargent College

Feeling the Finals Crunch? With the semester wrapping up, it becomes impossible to find a nook in Mugar, the gym is filled with people trying to release stress in 15 minute sprints, and every table at the GSU is packed with students studying while eating. We received the following question In the Sargent Choice Mailbox:


I was wondering if you can tell me some foods that can help you study/ provide brain power   Thanks

In stressful periods of time such as Finals, good nutrition is key. A combination of lack of sleep, and stress will leave you feeling exhausted, and on the verge of getting sick. Sticking to a healthy diet will help power your study sessions and bring you to the end of finals period feeling strong!
