We all know that family meals together are super important:
- for strengthening family connections and reducing stress
- for improved lifelong nutrition and health outcomes
- for supporting language, cultural literacy, good grades, and social skills
- they are economical
- and they can be hilarious
This is a tricky season, the days and hours blur and there is not much relief. Whatever is on the table, this time together is vital work. And you’ll do it again. And again. And again.
Mealtime is tricky. For as much work as you have put in to get dinner on the table and then into your kid, you get a trophy.
We all sat at the table and ate together!
P.S. Send this trophy to a parent who could use reminding of how awesome they are to gather their gang and share a meal.
