yogurt & cereal-a snack to keep you on the right study track

Whether you’re commuting to campus or taking courses remotely, going to school can work up an appetite. Between classes, study sessions, projects, and, well, life, it’s important to stay fueled.

A recent post on the Mayo Clinic’s Nutrition-wise blog shares some smart snacking strategies.

Listen to your body’s hunger cues. Are you legitimately hungry? Do you tend to want or need a snack at the same time of day? Once you start to notice patterns, plan ahead!

A few quick & easy snacks are:

  • An apple with 1 tbsp peanut butter
  • Sliced veggies (try bell peppers, cucumber, and carrots) and 2 tbsp hummus
  • 1 6-oz container yogurt with ¼ cup granola or other cereal
  • Half a sandwich on whole wheat bread
