National Family Meals Month is officially celebrated in September. Headed up by the FMI Foundation, the “holiday” began as a movement to help bring families together to share a meal at least once a month. (After all, with the hustle and bustle of everyday life, it’s hard to get everybody together in one place — at the same time — for a family meal.)
At Food Town, we believe most of the best stuff happens around the family table. In fact, studies have shown that, when families eat together, the food they eat tends to have a higher nutritional value. Not only that, but they also develop a closer connection with one another. For those reasons — and so many more — we’re on a mission to encourage families to gather ‘round for meals together all year long.
Here are a few simple ways you can encourage your family to participate in and enjoy meals together:
While it’s great to celebrate National Family Meals Month in September, this is one holiday that has real staying power. We hope these tips give your family some inspiration on ways they can enjoy some quality time — and fantastic food, of course — at mealtime. Be sure to stop by and see us at your neighborhood Food Town, to grab every great ingredient for your next family meal!
