Working full time while raising children is physically and mentally demanding. With little time for themselves, parents who come home from their day job to their second shift as mom or dad may be stressed and fatigued.

So to combat the effects of a hectic, non-stop day, we’ve compiled 10 essential nutrients that working parents need to feel more energized, relaxed, happy, and healthy.
Note: These suggestions are all for healthy, food-based sources of important nutrients. If you are considering supplements for these nutrients, talk to your doctor first.
