Eat Better, Eat Together
October is National Eat Better, Eat Together Month. Research shows that eating together with friends or family promotes healthier eating habits. This is also a great opportunity to show off your good eating behaviors to family members/friends like taking small bites, putting the utensil down between bites, stopping when you feel satisfied and not going back for leftovers. You will be an awesome role model for anyone you eat with!
Start with one meal per week. Pick a day of the week when everyone will be at home and schedule a family dinner in the weekly schedule/planner. Once you are able to meet this goal, add another meal and then another. Each family member can take turns picking the menu and even preparing the meal. Eventually, it will become a habit to eat together and you will cherish this wonderful time with your family!
