FoodPlanner – If you like planning meals in advance then this app is for you. It lets you import healthy recipes from blogs and websites to build your own customized meal plans. You can also use your own recipes and create shopping lists – ideal for when you do your weekly food shop (and also saves you money!)

Fooducate – If you’re watching your weight and want to avoid added ingredients that aren’t so good for you, this app can help. It lets you track your food intake and exercise, share tips and ask questions in a community, scan thousands of product barcodes to see nutrition grades, and more.

Get out and exercise!

Get out and walk or cycle instead of taking the bus (you will get your steps in and save money). Nearly every town/city has a park go for a run there! Take a walk in the evening to wind down from work or college.

Have a look at what student discounts your local gym is offering, shop around and look at different options!

There are so many cheap and alternative ways to exercise as a student so you have no excuse!
