Making Time: The benefits of eating together

It can be hard to make time, even for the most important things in our lives. Everything moves so quickly these days it’s easy to just lose track, and lose connections with our friends and our family.

One of the easiest ways to make time for family and friends, is having a meal together. There have been several studies recently about the importance of eating together, they have shown that sitting down for a communal meal can play a vital role in a child’s upbringing.

“Studies have shown time and again that eating together has multiple benefits for everyone involved, but especially for children, and not only for nutritional purposes but in many other aspects as well.”

It teaches children skills in communication and interaction, giving them a good base for socialising. It also helps them feel more nurtured, when everyone has time to listen to one another. The act of eating together means that while one person is chewing, another person has a chance to talk.

Having the pressure of a making a family meal can sometimes be added stress however, so eating out can be the perfect option. All the joys of spending time with your family, without the hassle of food preparation of dishes to wash!
