Family Mealtime: Kamala’s

Family Mealtime Kamalas Spice

Family Mealtime has been in the air for years and we tend to forget the importance of it. It has become a difficult task for many families to stick to due to school, work schedules and extracurricular activities that can make it difficult to find time to eat together and some go days or weeks without sitting down as a family to share a meal.

What do the researchers say?

  1. Family meals are more nutritious than any other meal of the day because it would always be a meal that is cooked with proteins and veg.
  2. Kids become less picky eaters when they get a range of foods
  3. Mealtime provides a family with quality time to bond and build relationships
  4. Research shows that kids who eat family meals have a lower chance of engaging in high risk behaviors such as substance use and violence, and fewer psychological problems.

Tips for eating more meals together:

  1. Make mealtime a must in your family.
  2. Make mealtime exciting by giving each family member a task and option to choose from for the week
  3. Let the kids be involved. Let them help prepare food or set the table.
  4. Work as a family to clean up afterwards.
  5. Make sure that you turn off the TV.
