In this episode of Healthy Family Project, we talk with our good friend, Jackie Vega, RD, about small ways parents and caregivers can take better care of themselves. Jackie shares realistic and manageable tips to ensure you’re staying hydrated, getting quality rest, and making time for yourself.

Jackie is a registered dietitian, ACE-certified personal trainer, wife, and mom of two. She is the founder of the Wellness Solution where she offers guidance to her clients on all things health and fitness.

Jackie recently launched the Busy Moms Kitchen podcast where she invites you into her kitchen to listen in on conversations about life as busy moms, reaching health and fitness goals and other things that only you and your girlfriends will understand.
