Snacking dos and don’ts
WHAT TO INCLUDE IN YOUR DIET
Protein: include a source of highquality protein with each meal. Organic eggs are a fantastic source of protein and Omega 3 healthy fats.
Nuts and seeds: walnuts, in particular, are a really great source of brain-friendly good fats. A rainbow of fruit and vegetables. Green tea gives a gentle mental boost without the jittery downsides of coffee.
Lots of water: research has shown that even the mildest dehydration of only 1-2 percent of body water can affect your ability to concentrate.
WHAT NOT TO INCLUDE IN YOUR DIET
Low-fat yoghurts: they’re often full of sugar to make them taste better.
Diet drinks: while they’re lower in sugar, they include other ingredients that have been linked with a long-term risk of dementia. Posh coffees: usually served with avoured syrups.
'Artisan' popcorns: they often have sugary ingredients added for avour.
