Cook together. Eat together. Talk together: Make mealtime a shared time.
The Nutrition Council of Oregon shared meals initiative is designed to help Oregonians understand the physical, emotional and social benefits of sharing meals with others. Regular family meals lead to greater consumption of dairy, fruits, vegetables, and grains, and reduced consumption of soft drinks. Youth who have regular family meals also do better in school, are more motivated and are less likely to engage in risky behaviors.
