The Power of Family Mealtimes: Strategies to Promote Health and Wellbeing

About this Webinar

Many of us overlook the importance of family mealtimes. There are many reasons such as being overbooked, overscheduled, work, traffic, the reasons are endless. There seem to be fewer and fewer occasions when the family can sit down together and enjoy a meal.

The benefits of family mealtimes are numerous. Research has shown that children consume more nutritious meals, get better grades, and engage in less high-risk behavior.  Tune into this webinar to learn more about the benefits of family mealtimes, how they affect health and well-being, and tips on how to create a positive family mealtime experience when even during busy times.
