Tomorrow, our Year 12 students will sit their VCE English exam. We know that the coming exam period may be a highly stressful time for our students. To help them through, our Food Technology teachers Sally Keys and Minna Rautiainen have shared their top 10 food tips for optimal brain health.

  • Oily fish like salmon
  • Whole grain cereals
  • Eggs
  • Dark green leafy vegetables and fruits (to help keep your immune system in top shape)
  • Fresh fruit including avocados
  • Green tea
  • Don’t skip breakfast and make it healthy so your blood sugar level stays steady and doesn’t hinder your concentration
  • Avoid caffeine and energy drinks (especially after 6 pm)
  • Drink plenty of water
  • Eat nutritious snacks  in between meals (eg fresh fruit and nuts) and avoid highly-processed foods like chocolate and biscuits
