You know that family meals are important for helping children develop good nutritional habits. But did you also know that family meals are critical for our kid’s emotional and cognitive development as well? Numerous studies show that kids who eat family meals 3 or more times per week get higher grades, have larger vocabularies and higher self-esteem, and are less likely to engage in risky behaviors like drugs and premarital sex.
The beautiful ladies at www.SixSistersStuff.com are hosting a 4×4 Family Dinner Challenge for the month of March. The goal? Family dinners 4 nights per week, for 4 weeks. Easy Peasy!
Pressed for time? No problem. Dinner doesn’t have to be gourmet. It just has to happen. When it comes to bringing the family together, frozen pizza works just as well as a four-course meal.
And let’s face it: we’re all tired and busy these days, and we need simple tools to make our lives easier. Here are two resources that do just that.
First, email SixSistersStuff and they’ll send you a eCookbook filled with delicious recipes.
Then, for great Conversation Starters for Families, check out The Magic of Family Meals. Easy and simple – just open the book and ask a question. Never again will you stare at your plates, wondering what to say. It’s perfect for busy families.
So let’s get together for family meals this month, and let’s talk! If you can’t fire the drive thru, then at least bring it home to eat around your kitchen table.
I’m in! Who’s with me?
