Five Benefits of Eating Together as a Family 

When we have family meals together, our kids benefit from this special time! Check out five benefits of eating together as a family along with some of our MOST POPULAR recipes to eat with your loved ones.

Eating Together as a Family can...

1. Support Healthy Eating and Portion Control

Family dinners give grown-ups a chance to model healthy eating and teach kids about proper portion control.

💡Tip: Consider asking kids to help make dinner. 

2. Build Relationships 

💡Tip: Keep mealtime conversation positive and save more serious or discipline-related topics for another time.

Mealtime is a great opportunity to ask each other about his or her day, make plans, or joke around together. 

3. Protect Against Substance Abuse

4. Support Mental Health and Well-Being

💡Tip: Consider letting kids choose a way to help out during mealtime.

Mealtime can help reinforce responsible behaviors, like helping with dinnertime chores. Such involvement can boost kids' self-esteem.
