A List Of The Absolute Best Snacks For Study Breaks

With the end of the semester fast approaching, it’s that time of year again. A time when we all lock ourselves in our rooms or plant ourselves in a chair at the library with a book in hand in hopes that we can feed our brain with just a little more knowledge to help us pass our exams with flying colors.

A time when your daily meals fall from a solid 3 to almost remembering to drink some water. A time when school is your main focus from the time you open your eyes in the morning to the time you go to sleep, and even then, some of us dream about Calculus and Spanish.

Sometimes, however, you just can’t study anymore. Your brain feels full and your stomach is begging you to please eat something. For a little help in the department of study breaks, I have decided to share my secret tips as to how to make and chose the best study snacks and also a few of my friend's favorites along with my personal ones.


  1. Try to pick things that are pretty filling: If you’re in a bind, eating a filling snack will help you calm your hunger and then get back to the books as quickly as possible.
  2. Avoid lots of sugar: You won’t feel great if you’re pumping a bunch of candy into your body and you won’t want to study anymore. You’ll get tired and feel unmotivated. A little sugar is good, but try not to over-do it!
  3. Peanut butter, always peanut butter: For some reason, peanut butter just makes everything better, it adds flavor variety to anything and is even a source of protein! (I apologize if you’re allergic.)
  4. Fruits and Vegetables are the way to go: Putting things that are good for you into your body help make you feel good. They calm your hunger without making you feel gross or like you need a nap.
  5. Mix up your favors: Choosing things that have similar flavors can start to make everything taste boring. All your flavors might even start to mix together which can have catastrophic results.
  6. Avoid cheesy or salty residue: This tip is for you students who don’t have time to take a break. Avoiding messy residue is just a favor you can do for your textbooks, they will thank you.
  7. Stay away from lots of grease: Much like sugar, eating a lot of grease just makes you feel sick and tired. Avoid it if you can to feel better while studying.
  8. Salt will always be good: while it might not be the best idea health-wise, salty study snacks always seem to be a nice break as opposed to something super sugary or greasy.

The Best Study Snacks:

  1. Coffee - need I say more?
  2. Peanut Butter Pretzels or Crackers - for when you need some salt in your life.
  3. Popcorn - with some movie theater butter.
  4. Goldfish - it’s the perfect study snack because it smiles back
  5. Apples with Peanut Butter - combining two amazing things to make an even better one.
  6. Celery with Cream Cheese - another genius concoction.
  7. Hot Cheetos - a spicy alternative that isn’t great for you but definitely worth it.
  8. Granola Bars - amazing varieties, there's something for everyone.
  9. Chips - again, the variety is amazing.

Take a quick study break and grab some of these snacks and then go back to planting your face back in your textbooks!
