As a driver, you know that there are many things, including alcohol, some prescription and over-the-counter medications, that should NOT go into your body prior to driving. Did you know your snacking choices can affect your alertness as well? Certain foods with a low-glycemic index may help to keep your blood glucose steady for up to two hours and may help increase alertness?*
