Every day drinks to help you to think

Milk:  A University of Maine study showed that adults who consumed dairy products at least 5 times a week did better in memory tests than those who didn't.

 

Water:  In tests at the University of East London, water was found to boost performance in 'mental tests'.  Water is listed as an aid to cognitive function by the EU.

  • EU

 

 

We believe every child and young adult at Sprowston Community High School should be ... 'Healthy, happy and safe; loved, valued and respected; and have high aspirations for their future.'
