The Meal Deal

By
Real Estate Agent with RE/MAX Realty Center

I read a recent Better Homes and Gardens article, which said the research is clear:  Family dinners are good for kids.  But if you are not in the habit, it can be hard to make it happen.  Thanks to The Family Dinner Project, an online community started by a bunch of like-minded Harvard folks.  On their site, thefamilydinnerproject.org, you can find tips to get started (think small and don't obsess on dinner---maybe breakfast is better for your family), a log to track progress, a list of one-line conversation starters, mealtime games, and of course, menus.  Genius!

We always ate dinner together as a family....that probably explains my character.  Hmmmm....

I always insisted on family dinner together, Kristin. But after Tim got old enough for sports it was hard to keep it going so I don't how people do it. But I think if you set many 2-3 specific meals per week-that's a good start.

Toni, I agree, probably unrealistic for many to do it each day, but as often as possible is great!
