Did you know that family dining has lots of benefits for the health of your children and the strength of your family?
Kids who eat at home with their families more than four nights per week are more likely to try new foods and on average consume more nutrient-rich foods like low-fat dairy, whole grains, vegetables, fruits and lean meats. In addition to the nutritional benefits, family dining has other benefits like reducing stress, helping increase school performance and improving family communication.
There’s no better time than now to take the pledge because as a champion of this healthy habit you will receive monthly newsletters, free local food and activity offers and access to expert tips and recipes that help you make it happen. We do it all to help you to cook and eat at home more nights each week.
