Family Mealtime = Healthy Eating

As families get back into the school year and fall routine, it's important to remember to make time for family meals  – especially for dinners that are healthy, home-made and enjoyed by everyone.

When families sit down to eat a meal together, there are benefits for everyone sitting around the table. Family meals allow parents and caregivers to be good role models for healthy eating, while helping children learn lifelong healthy eating habits. Studies also show children develop higher self-esteem, better mealtime manners, and improved sense of structure and belonging.
