Welcome to The Kids’ Table
January 28, 2013
Studies have shown family dinners increase grade point averages and overall parental happiness, while decreasing the risk of eating disorders, depression and teen pregnancy. So we’re all in agreement that gathering the fam together with food (at any time of day, really) should happen. The question is how? Raise your hand if you find it easy to find the time to prepare a healthy dinner no one proclaims “mushy” or “weird,” and that everyone eats up without leaving their seat or spilling on the table.
That’s why we started The Kids’ Table. We know the same question that haunts us every day haunts you too: What’s for dinner? (also, its neverending corollaries: What should I pack for lunch? and What’s a snack that won’t spoil dinner?) Our editors and a host of guest foodies will give you ideas for all of the above, plus tips for keeping kids busy so you can cook, advice for dealing with picky eaters, ideas for getting kids to open up about their day, hints for holiday eats, and more.
If there’s ever a topic you’d like to see covered, drop us a line at firstname.lastname@example.org. We’re all in this together, so pull up a seat!
