5 Best Brain Boost Snacks for Study and Work Time

On a scientific note, experts believe that the choice of food you take every day is a huge factor in keeping up your productivity. If you are interested in improving your work pace and focus, here are some Brain Boost Snacks that can help you go the extra mile of productivity in a day.

Brewed Coffee

Money does not buy happiness, but coffee does; therefore, we need money to buy a cup of coffee. I bet you will agree with this statement being an ardent coffee lover. Note: I am referring to the natural brewed coffee not the sugary instant one.

Drinking coffee is a common morning ritual for working people because it helps them stay awake and active for the entire day. The main components in coffee: caffeine and antioxidants help support brain health. The effects are increased alertness, improved mood, and concentration. However, remember to drink in moderation.

Tuna Sandwich

One common snack offer in an office or school cafeteria is the timeless “Tuna Sandwich”. The reason it is included in the list is because of having the tuna as its meat filling inside. Tuna is under the category of “Fatty Fish”, such as salmon, trout, and sardines. All of these are rich in Omega 3 Fatty acids.

Our brain uses omega-3s to build brain and nerve cells. These type of fats are essential in building nerves in the brain that enhances memory and learning skills.

Blueberry Cheesecake

A slice of a blueberry cheesecake from a cafe nearby brings such delight on study or work breaks. Who would not agree to this? The good news is blueberries provide numerous benefits to how our brain functions.

According to studies, the antioxidants in blueberries accumulate in the brain and improves communication between brain cells. Thus, blueberries could help improve memory and certain cognitive process. This is a perfect treat before taking major exams and tackling a brain-draining project at work.


Before we go nuts over the complexity of our tasks while beating the deadlines, you must also learn that nuts as part of your side snacks during the grinding hour can help you survive the day.

Nuts contain a host of brain-boosting nutrients that includes Vitamin E, healthy fats, and plant compounds. It also helps reduce the risk of cognitive decline in older adults. Among all kinds of nuts, walnuts take an edge for its omega 3 content.

Hard Boiled Eggs

No time to buy snacks in the shop, boil an egg is an easy move. An egg is a good source of several nutrients that are known good for the brain because it has Vitamins B6, B12, Folate, and Choline.

It mostly comes from the yellow yolk part of the egg. Now, we understand that a simple egg left inside the fridge is definitely a Brain Boost Snacks. Β
