In today's busy world, sometimes we lose sight of the family dinner. With work commitments, kids' school and extra-curricular activities, and the general craziness of life it is often difficult to sit down to a regular family dinner. But family dinners are important and even though families may not be able to have a regular non-rushed family dinner every night, it is important to try and fit in a few each week. Here are some reasons why family dinners are important:
Even though family dinners are important, no one has a lot of time pulling them together. After a long day at work and school, families need to unwind not hyperventilate! Here are some dinner planning tips to help.
Use a monthly family meal planner to help you plan nutritious dinners.
Do as much dinner prep as possible on the weekends. Things like cutting vegetables, defrosting meats, mixing marinades can all be done ahead of time.
Let the kids help by setting the table, emptying the dishwasher, setting out the dinner games, pouring drinks, and rinsing and putting dishes in the dishwasher. Older kids may be able to make simple side dishes or mix a salad.
Set themes for each day of the week. For example, make Monday's chicken night, Tuesday's pasta night, Wednesdays crock pot night, etc.
