Tip # 8 Sit down to a family meal once a day
Children often love sitting down with their family to have their dinner – it’s a great opportunity for them to discuss their day and for all to share a good moment. Meals should be an enjoyable – not stressful – daily event. No matter how healthy a meal, if your child is distracted by television or not paying attention to what’s in their plate, their body will not gain the same benefits as a meal shared with joy and enthusiasm!
This may also be a good time for you to explain to them what they will gain from the food they are eating (more energy, better learning, strength, growth etc) and what else they might want to eat the next day.
