This week, I’m sharing my dinner menu and some fun tips to get your family engaged at meal time in honor of National Family Meals Month™! As a Mom, and a dietitian, I am so excited to be a part of this movement to raise awareness around the benefits of family meals.
Fun Facts on Family Meals (1)
I thought it would fun to share my menu this week, including short cuts or tips when it comes to meal time for our family and also some tricks to get your family engaged at mealtime.
Monica's Menu, Meal Tips and the Rules of Engagement:
Monday: Jambalaya with corn on the cob and sliced fresh veggies.
As you are settling in to your back to school routine, September is the perfect time hit the reset button on family meal time or tweak your routine just a little. No one knows better what will work for your family than you. If dinners are hectic with too many schedules to work around, maybe breakfast or lunch would be easier? Do that. Make that work. And have fun!!
I love this recipe for a family meal: appetites, eaters, food, time & place!
If you’re with me, Raise Your Mitt to Commit™ to one more meal at home per week. That’s it! For more information about this movement, follow The Food Marketing Institute Foundation at https://www.fmi.org/family-meals/our-mission
