ABOUT THIS WEBINAR
Many of us overlook the importance of family mealtimes. There are many reasons such as being overbooked, over-scheduled, work, and traffic- the reasons are endless. There seem to be fewer and fewer occasions when the family can sit down together and enjoy a meal. The benefits of family mealtimes are numerous. Research has shown that children consume more nutritious meals, get better grades, and engage in less high-risk behavior. Tune in to this webinar to learn more about the benefits of family mealtimes, how they affect health and well-being, and tips on how to create a positive family mealtime experience even during the busiest times!
After participating in this webinar, attendees will be able to:
Identify 2 strategies to make mealtimes healthier and higher quality
