Benefits of the Family Table

Family meals are powerful for many reasons. First, meal times impact all of our senses โ€“ the sight, touch, taste, and smell of food, as well as listening to family conversation. Family meals offer the opportunity to spend time together, reconnect after a busy day, communicate with and listen to each other, share values and ideas, and problem solve.

.

Family meals provide structure for the day, allowing children to feel more secure and safe, knowing what to expect. They also permit parental monitoring of childrenโ€™s moods, behavior, and activities, providing parents with insight into the emotional well-being of their children.

.

The family table is one of the very few places that children can observe their parents interact, negotiate, solve problems, express emotions and treat one another with respect. A childโ€™s world is mostly spent with peers and teachers; the family table gives them a chance to see how adults interact and cooperate.
