5 healthy habits for back to school

People assume that since we are homeschoolers that we don't do back to school. A cashier even made the comment the other day that we didn't need to buy school supplies, completely not true. We used pencils and crayons too and like to buy them when they are on sale. Even though we are home and school year round for the most part, we use this time to reset and reorganize so we can get back into the swing of things.

Whether you are a homeschooler or your children go to school, I have 5 Healthy Habits for Back to School.

1. Set a routine – Summer is over and so are those late nights of playing games and watching movies. Kids need to get to bed at a decent time so they aren't tired in the mornings. Setting a routine helps children know what to expect and cuts down on stress.

2. Start Your Day with a Nutritious Breakfast – Sure poptarts are fast and easy but aren't the best choice nutritionally. Studies show that children who eat a nutritious breakfast function better. They do better in school, and have better concentration and more energy. Eggs really only take a few minutes to cook and those little brains deserve it!.

3. Give Your Children a Good Multivitamin –  A good multivitamin gives essential daily nutritional support that your children may be lacking. We use Nature Made® KIDS FIRST® Multivitamin Gummies. You can get them at Target, and kids can get a head start with healthy habits, so it becomes routine for back-to-school. Not only do they taste great, they help fill many of the key nutrient gaps from your kids diet and support overall health.

4. Good Nutrition All Day Long – Pack a good healthy lunch. Not only do you know exactly what your children are eating but you'll save money too. Good nutrition has a lasting effect, especially when your children are developing.

5. Develop a Good Homework and Study Environment – It doesn't matter if you homeschool or send the kids off, when they are home doing work they need an environment conducive to learning. A nice quiet space such as a desk in their room is great. Establish rules such as no t.v. or tech when they need to be focusing on school work. Also supervise their work, make sure they aren't wasting time online. Be there to answer questions but don't do the work for them.

If you keep up with these 5 Healthy Habits for Back to School your children's school year will be less stressful and the kids will appreciate it.

  1. A multivitamin is so important for everyday use, and especially important for when it is time for back to school. My daughter usually bring home a cold each school year.

  2. It’s time to get us back into some healthy habits. In the summer is so hard sometimes to want to do healthy stuff just because it’s fun to make hotdogs and hamburgers and eat ice cream. It’s a good reminder that we need to get back up on the healthy food.

  3. This is totally true that homeschooling also needs these habits. We are just now getting back into the routine of things!

  4. These are great tips! I need to get back in the routine of a multivitamin. Summer totally made me lose the thought of keeping my body up.

  5. We always start our school routine about a week before school. It is so important to start the day with a good breakfast.

  6. to me home school is harder. you guys do way more than i ever could. super important to start the day with the right health products.

  7. This sounds like a good strategy and plan for success. A buddy who home schools her kids has often told me things they are doing – a huge amount of work, and structure and can be expensive, but satisfying if your kids are thriving education wise and health wise.
