Do not “bee” too anxious about your child’s test scores The best advice you can give your child is to “just relax and do your best.” Parents should also make sure children: Arrive at school on time Get adequate rest. Eat a nutritious breakfast. Receive encouragement before the test. Dress comfortably on test days.
When preparing for an exam or situation that requires concentration, a meal or snack combining carbohydrate, protein, and fat is recommended. Whole grain or complex carbohydrate is an excellent energy source Most of the calories should come from whole grains (such as whole wheat: breads, muffins, and cereals), fruits, and vegetables.
