Picky Eater

During these festive days we suddenly realize how nice it is to sit down together for a nice meal and I feel privileged to have enjoyed our meals as a family not only during holidays but pretty much each day!

From: Lissa Coffey, author for http://www.Schoolmenu.com and http://www.familyeveryday.com

“Families are busy, but fortunately we’re not too busy to spend time eating meals together. A new study from the University of Minnesota shows that teens who have meals with their families on a regular basis have better grades and are less likely to be depressed. A study from Harvard University reports that kids are 15% less likely to be overweight if they eat with their families. And Emory University researchers have found that preteens who eat dinner and share stories with their families have higher self-esteem and better peer relationships during adolescence. Now that’s reason enough to gather around the table!”

Cheers, Monique
