Family traditions

Family Meal

The Family Meal was a tradition I grew up with and maintain to this day. Yet, it has become a forgotten tradition today in many families. Dr. Mercola states that eating together as a family can boost your health, emotional well-being and family relationships.  I think he has a good point.  Some other points he makes include:

  • Children who eat meals with their families get better grades, eat healthier, are less likely to be obese, and have greater emotional well-being and resilience
  • Family meals also lead to increased family bonding and help you pass down traditional cooking methods and other family traditions to your children

As we start this New Year, perhaps this should be something we add to our list of priorities!
