    Family meal time is SO important to incorporate into a healthy lifestyle; plus, it breeds really healthy lifelong eating habits!

    • Very true. During our cooking classes and our food and garden summer camp we always go around the table asking our kid chefs to share one thing they are grateful for before digging into their meal. It allows them a moment to step back and reflect on all that goes into their meal. Could be a great way to start a family meal too!
