Return to the Family Table
Posted On March 30, 2009
There are some things that we have forgotten … and just need to remember. Need an example?
Return to the Family Table.
This study just published in the March/April issue of the Journal of Nutrition Education and Behavior showed that kids who eat with their families are more likely to eat better, and to develop better eating behaviors.
According to the authors, of the 677 adolescents followed over 5 years, those who ate “regular family meals” had more healthful diets, meaning they consumed more vegetables, calcium-rich food, dietary fiber and essential nutrients.
This is something that has been lost in many families, because it is deemed to be less important than many other items on the To-Do list. Unfortunately, we can also erode our nutritional, social, and familial health in the process.
