Family Meal Time
Children who spend more time with the parents tend to be happier and learn better. |
A good way to spend time together is eating together as a family.
During family mealtime, children can practice conversational skills, learn good table manners and learn how to make healthy food choices.
It’s important to maintain a positive atmosphere around the table. Avoid topics that might cause conflict, and instead, ask the children about their favorite part of the day, recall things you’ve done together, or plan a family outing.
For best results, set regular meal times so children can learn the routine.
Turn of the TV and ask the children to help set the table and prepare the food.
With you by their side, your children will grow healthy, active and happy.
