Importance of Family Dinner Time
Do you share meals with your family?
More and more research is proving that family dinners strengthen family bonds, promote healthy eating and nurtures family bonds. Every member of the family, from the youngest to the oldest, can benefit from sit-down dinners with loved ones.
Researchers at Columbia University suggest that kids who eat family meals get better grades, develop good social skills and are less likely to try drugs.
As children age, it's important to keep the lines of communication open, which builds trust. It's a great time to unplug and focus on connecting and 'catching up'. These moments are valuable.
Family dinners offer an opportunity to connect, share and really listen to what’s on their mind. And they are moments you will treasure.
