During times of examination, which the majority of homes are experiencing now, mothers feel confused about the best ways to feed their children, whether before or after the exam-time. In addition, some mothers could skip presenting a useful breakfast meal. This could drive them to depend on junk food.

Here, you can find several impactful tips for the best home nutrition for your children during this challenging time.


Without a doubt, breakfast is one of the most important meals for the day. It provides your children with the energy and power needed for all processes related to brain work, reciting and recalling information, and thinking.

Therefore, experts recommend milk and wheat pudding (Balila) with fruit or nuts like peanuts or raisins. It helps students to relax and motivate their bodies to generate energy.

Fresh juice should be included, especially fresh orange, or lemon juice, due to the presence of vitamin C.

Students can also have tea latte or the Arabic coffee latte, but, instant coffee is not preferred for them to avoid Tachycardia.


Lunch is also a significant meal, but, students can have it after taking a short nap after returning home.

Lunch is preferred to be health, balanced, and light. It also should depend on protein like poultry more than seafood or red meat because they need more time to be digested, so it could cause exhaustion or laziness.

Carbohydrates are important for lunch like rice, brown bread, and pasta because they are an essential source of energy.

Don't forget to enhance the meals with fresh and cooked vegetables and fruits to have the needed minerals and vitamins.


Sandwiches could be among the great options for the dinner. Cheese sandwiches are one of the best choices. You can also add pieces of cucumber or arugula.

You can also add to the meal yogurt or milk. It will be useful for them due to their richness of minerals.


Fresh juice like tomato, orange, and watermelon, fruit salad, cake or biscuits, pudding, nuts, and fruit jelly are nice options for midday snacks for the students.

Finally, we wish all students good luck.
