The Power of Family Mealtimes: Strategies to Promote Health and Wellbeing

August 21, 2018 @ 11:00 am - 12:00 pm EDT

Family eating lunch outside


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:

  1.  Identify 2 strategies to make mealtimes healthier and higher quality
  2.  Apply 2 strategies to their own mealtime routines
  3.  Counsel adult family members to improve their mealtimes to improve well-being



Dr. Barbara Fiese is a Clinical Developmental Psychologist whose research focuses on family factors that promote health and well-being in children. She is Professor and Director of the Family Resiliency Center at the University of Illinois at Urbana-Champaign.
