Eating at home makes kids smarter -er!

Back to School: Eat at home, improve your grades The British Columbia Medical Association has written up a good factsheet on eating at home, with a few interesting findings – especially this one: Children who eat at least one meal a day with their family develop more nutritious eating habits and do better at school…Mealtime encourages conversation and interaction around the dinner table, which improves a child’s vocabulary and communication skills. This leads to better performance in school and fewer behavioural problems. I admit – with three kids, it’s much easier to bow to the call of the Big Mac, but we’ve found that home-cooked meals are not only cheaper and healthier, but it’s nice to spend time around the table instead of under flourescent lights. What are your best tips for more meals at home? Give us your thoughts in the comments. — [British Columbia Medical Association]
