We have been making more of an effort to eat together as a family more often. To get the conversation flowing we have been asking loads of questions. It is amazing how much we have learned about each other. Dinner time is now one of our favorite times of the day!
If you would like get the conversation going at your dinner table download these free dinner questions.
Thanks to Vanity Fair for challenging our family to #takebackthetable. We are all busy and it is often hard to sit down for a meal together. Mealtime is proving to very beneficial in raising happy healthy kids!
According to The National Center on Addiction and Substance Abuse at Columbia University, kids and teens who share family dinners three or more times per week:
- Are less likely to be overweight
- Are more likely to eat healthy food
- Perform better academically
- Are less likely to engage in risky behaviors (drugs, alcohol, sexual activity)
- Have better relationships with their parents
Our friends at Vanity Fair know how valuable mealtime is and are encouraging us to take time to share a meal and make memories. So print off some dinner questions and gather together for a meal. It doesn’t need to be fancy! It can even be take out. The point is to spend time together!
Take the pledge to #takebackthetable and eat together as a family at least once a week. Be sure to encourage your friends to take the pledge too!
I took the pledge to #takebackthetable to show how important it is to spend more time with family at meal time.
If you want to get kids talking this would you rather game with questions is a great way to get things started.
