Family Dinners- Fun and Healthy for Kids!

Discover the many benefits of family dinners, get practical steps for scheduling meals together, easy cooking tips, recipes, resources, and our new 'Family Dinner Conversation Card Game!'  Read Family Dinners this month's 'Nourish Healthy Kids' article for tips on making it a successful, fun and healthy time!


Why Family Dinners? According to research, sharing family dinner on a routine basis is associated with improved children's health and stronger family bonds. Also, children who are familiar with their family culture and history, through family meals, had a closer relationship to family members, higher self-esteem, and a greater sense of control over their own lives. Studies show that families, who sit together for mealtime at least 3 or 4 times a week, benefit in many ways.  


National Family Meal Day is Sept 28! It's a great time to eat dinner together. We know that time is certainly one of the major obstacles to families gathering at mealtime. Here are some practical tips and resources to make it easier to enjoy family dinners together!
