Attendance is especially important while trying to maintain good grades in class. You can’t keep up with all the quizzes, exams and papers due if you’re not going to class. Having a balanced diet and routine will help your energy enhance, and will help you avoid calling out sick from school. While infectious colds do tend to happen from time to time, and out of our control, getting enough vitamin C will surely help boost your immune system.


Eating a healthy breakfast is a stepping stone to a focused, energized day at school. Additionally, having healthy snacks to eat between your classes such as nuts, grapes, or bananas, will help curb your hunger and keep your metabolism going. An active metabolism will give you more energy to meet the daily demands of school. Foods such as legumes, nuts, seafood, and meat can help boost your metabolism.


Nutrition plays a huge role in retaining memory and recalling information from our previous study sessions. Foods that will help you with memory retention include blueberries, avocados, fatty fish, flax seeds, and dark chocolate. Eating healthy can help improve your test scores by sharpening your focus and settling your nerves before an exam.


Use these tips to ensure that you are getting better quality nutrition in your everyday diet so that your test scores, study habits, and health will be on the rise!
