If there was one thing you could do for your kids to improve communication, get better grades, reduce stress, improve health, reduce obesity and improves behavior, and saves money, would you do it?
Yes! Would you believe there is one thing you can do to achieve all of these things.
It’s eating together as a family.
Sixty years ago, the average dinner lasted 90 minutes, and the average dinner meal lasted 12 minutes or less!
Science and research have clearly stated, time and again, that families that eat together are healthier mentally and physically. It is one of the simplest yet, at times, ways to improve families, but it can also be one of the hardest things to manage. One of the most important questions I ask when working with families is “Where do you eat?” and “With who?”
Research has shown that eating together as a family is one of the best things a parent can do to help their children be healthy mentally and physically.
