What’s the buzz from Children’s Health Queensland? Why family meal times matter

May 12, 2017

Families who eat together have better health, relationships and social development.

When you can eat together without the TV or iPad, it can be a great time to talk as a family. Try talking with your children about how your days went, what you did or what is going to happen the next day.

Teach your children about food and healthy eating. Maybe you could talk about feeling hungry or full. Talk about how the food tastes or smells. Try to keep meal times relaxed and fun.
