We’re approaching exam season, with only a few weeks left for our junior and leaving certificate students to cram. The time preceding these exams can naturally give cause to stress, not only for those sitting the exams, but also for their parents and guardians. We want to encourage our children to do their best, yet not add to an already pressurised system.

In the past, I found one of the best supports I could offer during exam season, as a mother, was the delivery of nutritious food. We all feel more energised when we saturate our diet with nutrient-dense ingredients. Eating well can actually help us to concentrate better. Studying requires a lot of energy, so it’s vital our students are sufficiently fuelled with the correct nutrients to meet this demand.
