Why family meals matter

By Cheryl Mussatto MS, RD, LD

The most important conversation of our lives happens around the family dinner table. Food nourishes life. Sharing it with family, nurtures living.

September is National Family Meals Month and is meant to encourage families everywhere to share at least one meal a week. When we return to the kitchen to enjoy wholesome meals together as a family, this unpretentious ritual has more power resulting in children who are smarter, stronger, healthier, happier and well-adjusted.
