Trying to eat dinner together as a family more often? Here are 15 Healthy Family Dinners everyone will love!
These days it seems like there is a food-related National XYZ Day/Month for pretty much every day of the week. I tend to ignore most of them, but some just so happen to cover topics near and dear to my heart and one of those is family meals.
Growing up, my mom was a stickler for us eating together as a family pretty much every night and I couldn't be more grateful. Family meals have been shown to benefit children and teens by helping to fight obesity and substance abuse and strengthen family bonds. Now that I'm a mom myself, I realize even more how important that time together is for my own family.
The Food Marketing Institute created the Family Meals Movement to encourage people to make time for family meals. They can even help kids increase self-esteem, fend off risky behaviors and do better in school. It just so happens that September is Family Meals Month. To encourage you and your family to sit down and eat dinner together more frequently, we've rounded up 15 family-friendly dinner recipes that your whole family will enjoy eating together!
