rom the moment you had your child, you probably started to put your health on the back burner. Add in homeschooling to the mix, and you probably don’t even have time to think about your health.

This may result in you feeling low energy levels, seeing negative health consequences, or even feeling burned out.

Ultimately, this is going to prevent you from being the best homeschooling parent to your children.

My name is Nazima Qureshi, and I’m a registered dietitian and nutritionist. I’ll be talking about the importance of prioritizing your health as a homeschooling parent at the Islamic Homeschool Convention.

One of the key aspects to prioritizing your health is healthy eating. It’s important to start looking at healthy eating as a lifestyle, rather than, restrictive dieting, or something that is difficult to attain.

It’s important to start looking at healthy eating as a lifestyle, rather than, restrictive dieting, or something that is difficult to attain. One way to start incorporating healthy eating into your lifestyle is by spending some time every week doing meal prep.

Meal prepping is really going to help you have healthy snacks and meals for the week so that, not only, can you access these, but your children can also eat nutritious meals throughout the week.

I want to hear from you. I want to learn what the biggest challenge is for you when it comes to living a healthier lifestyle.
