What to Expect

A little food waste can't be that bad. Can it? You might be surprised! Did you know that…

OK, so food waste is a SERIOUS problem. But, why me? It’s just a family dinner, why is this so important for my family? Let’s talk psychology…

Six Reasons to have family dinner from the book “The Hour that Matters Most, the Surprising Power of the Family Meal” by Les and Leslie Parrott with Stephanies Allen Tina Kina

1. 61% of kids find their parents more relaxed and fun to be around when they have dinner together

3. 70% of kids appreciate their parents more when they take the time to share a meal together.

5. Children who eat family dinners consume more fruits & vegetables and less junk food.

2. 65% of parents feel less stressed when they eat dinner with their spouses as a family.

4. Kids in families eating together have less likelihood to smoke and develop eating disorders.

6. There is a strong relationship between love in a home and the richness of the family dinner table.

Family dinners matter! Oprah Winfrey conducted a family dinner experiment on her talk show. Five families accepted the challenge to eat dinner together every night for a month, staying at the table for a minimum of half an hour each time. As part of the experiment, family members kept journals to record their feelings about the experience. At the beginning, sharing meals was a chore for many families, and the minutes at the table dragged. By the end of the month, all families were happy and planned to continue dining together most evenings, if not every night.
