With School starting back up again on Janaury 7, there is never a shortage of information that you can get in regards to nutrition on the internet.

Whether you are in elementary, high school, or university it is important that you are eating healthy.

"One of the major things is trying to have regular meals and snacks throughout the day. So starting the day with breakfast, that can help you to be more alert and stay focused during the day," encourages registered dietician for Alberta Health Service, Maryke Mody.

Most people are too busy for breakfast, so that is a meal they often skip. Mody suggests planning your meals for the busiest times of your week, so you are still eating something that has nutritional value.

"If people aren't really used to having breakfast, or they often skip breakfast, then just starting with something simple like a piece of fruit or some toast with some peanut butter can just help you throughout the day; and then just continue to eat regularily," explains Mody

Mody also advises to keep yourself hydrated. Carrying around a water bottle to remind yourself to keep drinking water is a good way to stay hydrated. She also suggests that keeping hydrated throughout the day can make a big difference, and you can think a lot more clearly when you are hydrated.

"If you really want to help keep yourself fuelled, then I would say try to choose foods that will help you feel fuller for longer," says Mody.

She goes on to explain that the foods that will keep you fuller longer are fibre filled foods such as: fruits, vegetables, whole grains, nuts, seeds and legumes. Also, foods that have protein in them: meat, fish, eggs and tofu can all help you keep going between your meals.
