November 12, 2020 @ 12:00 pm - 1:00 pm EST

cover of book

Studies have tied shared meals to increased resiliency and self-esteem in children, higher academic achievement, a healthier relationship to food, and even reduced risk of substance abuse and eating disorders. Shared mealtime provides connection, enjoyment, and stability especially during the current pandemic.

At this session we discussed how and why to make family dinners:
– Playful
– Easy
– Talkative
– Meaningful

Speaker: Anne K. Fishel, PhD, Associate Professor in the Department of Psychiatry; Author of “Home for Dinner: Mixing Food, Fun and Conversation for a Happier Family and Healthier Kids”; and a founding member of The Family Dinner Project.
