Nutrition at the wheel

What kind of food sits well with driving?

  • Eating right is key when sitting at the wheel for hours
  • Driving consumes between 1,000 and 1,350  kilocalories a day
  • Pasta, rice, onions and tomatoes do not make good driving companions
  • Dehydration is just as dangerous for a driver as being under the influence of alcohol


With the holiday season in full swing, many people are going to make long car journeys, and for these to go smoothly, it is very important to pay attention to what you eat before setting off and during your trip. Eating the wrong food can cause drowsiness, fatigue, anxiety or stomach upsets that affect your concentration, which can considerably increase the risk of having an accident. In the words of Dr. Mari Carmen López of the SEAT CARS medical centre, “it's not good enough to tell yourself it'll go away soon; you have to be in full control of your faculties and stay as comfortable as possible, and that includes eating the right food.”
