I remember growing up on a farm and every evening my mom had a meal on the table for the family. We sat, we prayed, we ate, and we were a family. Are you trying to become a better mom by having an evening meal on the table? I have some simple ideas for planning, budgeting, and having a meal every evening on the table.
Meals aren’t just about the food, its more about the importance of eating together and creating an experience. Most American families are starved for time to spend together and sometimes dinner is the only time to reconnect, bond, tell stories, and share your day?
Did you know, over the past 15 years research has come to find that: sharing a family meal at your evening table is good for the human spirit, the brain, the mental and physical health of all family members? Recent studies link dining together with: lower rates of substance abuse, teen pregnancy and depression, as well as higher grade-point averages and self-esteem. Studies also indicate that dinner conversation is a more potent vocabulary-booster than reading, and the stories told around the evening table help our children build resilience. Regular family meals also lower the rates of obesity and eating disorders in children and adolescents. This is only a few to mention.
