Mealtime Matters! Toolkit

Family meals can have the special ability to nourish not only our bodies...but also our minds, hearts and lives.

Explore this toolkit to learn all about family meals—the benefits, as well as a few strategies to help overcome some of the challenges of having them regularly. Find ways to help make family mealtime a priority in your home.

This toolkit also contains many resources you can use to help empower the families you work with at your school to consider having more family meals, in addition to educating them about meal planning and eating healthfully.

Listen to our new Mealtime Matters! Podcast!
The podcast lasts about 15 minutes.
