When was the last dinner you had with your whole family? If you haven’t watched the video “Who would you most like to have dinner with?” from the campaign #MakeDinnertimeMatter by MasterFoods - take a look here. Did you know there is a lot of research showing the benefits of having dinner with the family?
According to a recent article in The Atlantic:
Children who do not eat dinner with their parents at least twice a week also were 40 percent more likely to be overweight compared to those who do.
The article also explores broader concept of what it means to eat well:
How then do we eat better, not just from a nutritional perspective, but from a psychological one as well?
The commercial does not directly address how mealtimes are being disrupted by technology. Evidence elsewhere shows that two thirds of British families say they sit down together for a family meal almost every day, yet on average 11.4 million tech devices such as smartphones and tablets to laptops and iPods are brought to family meals.Almost a quarter of families (22 per cent) who bring tech to the table feel they are prevented from having proper conversations with each other at meal times, seriously impacting on what should be quality time together.
