Sheloves to cook with her grandchildren. In this presentation she talks about how importantit is to cook with your children/grandchildren as well as to sit down and eat with themtoo. Family Meals are better for your physical health and your wallet. Creating the familydinner promotes healthy eating. Many studies identify nutritional benefits associatedwith eating meals together. One study, conducted by the Baylor College of Medicine,demonstrated that meals eaten together consist of about 50% more fruits andvegetables than meals consumed alone. In addition, family meals are three times morelikely to include low-fat choices and are far less likely to include soda. In another study,Harvard University researchers found that children who ate dinner with their familieswere more likely to have better nutritional intakes at meals. The study identified familieswhere mothers worked to underscore the fact that family dinner was possible evenwhen parents had less time. The family dinner can bring financial benefits as well.According to the Bureau of Labor Statistics, 43% of the family food budget in 2006 wasspent on “away from home” meals compared to food purchased from a grocery store.They also report that this translates into more than $2,000 per family per year spent ondinners away from home, and that 10% of those dinners come from McDonald’s.Children who eat dinner with their families do better in school, feel more sociallyconnected to their parents have better peer relationship and are less likely to try drugsand alcohol. There is even an organization called eatdinner.org dedicated to increasingawareness of the benefits of family meals.Larraine has wonderful ways of including children in the cooking and preparation of themeal. She teaches children about setting the table, learning how to place cutlery andcrockery, putting down place mats and napkins – all leading to the ceremony of eatingwith grace, and focus rather than stuffing and rushing. She teaches parents andgrandparents how to help children to cut safely, by holding her hand while she holds theknife.
