​​​​​​​​​​​​​​​​​​​​​​​​​​​​​​​​​​​​​​​​​​​​​​​​​​​​Eating together as a family is good
for the mind, body, and spirit.

Get started September Sunday Suppers PlannerStudies show that eating dinner together as a family can ​provide numerous benefits for children, including higher self-esteem and better communication with their parents. Eating together offers families a time to talk, which promotes closeness, trust, and c​omfort. But dinnertime needs to become a regular habit in order to sustain those benefits, and that means getting them used to it early on.
