NATIONAL EAT BETTER, EAT TOGETHER MONTH

Thursday, October 18th: Have fun. Eat with your family! October is NATIONAL EAT BETTER, EAT TOGETHER MONTH. It is time for adults to eat meals with children and teenagers and to celebrate family meals.

Washington State University’s Nutrition Education Department sponsors this month of delightful eating together. They state: “Although nutritious food is important, children and teenagers report that what they like about family meals is the mealtime conversation. They like having time to share, find out what others have been doing, and to laugh.

Families make eating together memorable in many ways. Some families have candlelight dinners. Others shop together so that each person can select a vegetable for family soup that they make and eat together. Some try foods from other countries. Others celebrate and share family memories around a traditional family recipe. Whether your family meal is quick and easy or more elaborate, make it nutritious and make it fun by enjoying each other’s company as you share a meal.”
