Then, check out our newly released Healthy Ramadan Guide! Here's a preview of some quotes from our guide:

"Ramadan is the perfect opportunity to engage holistically in an assessment of our spiritual, physical, and emotional health." - Kameelah Rashad, president and founder of the Muslim Wellness Foundation

"The Quran inspires our lives as Muslims and as mothers. One of my favorite ayahs (verses), speaks of the wholesome bounty of the earth. It reminds us of the traditional way of eating, a way that too many families have lost as we work hard to provide for our children in other ways. Through this initiative with MomsRising, we invite you to join us in reviving the Sunnah of eating from garden produce and finding ways of ensuring all our children have wholesome and healthy meals." - Khadija Gurnah, White House Champion for Change

Together we are a powerful voice for families.
