How Kids Benefit From Family Dinners + $75 @BostonMarket Gift Card Giveaway
Recent studies link regular family meals with the kinds of behaviors parents want for their children – high grade-point averages, resilience and self-esteem. Additionally, family meals are linked to lower rates of substance abuse, teen pregnancy, eating disorders and depression. We at Momma Cuisine are complete advocates for family meals!
Boston Market has a new initiative to remind families to remove barriers that stand between families and spending quality time by logging out of devices and sitting down together for a great meal, filled with meaningful conversation. Boston Market and Lisa Leslie are partnering to challenge families to log out and look up from their devices to participate in meaningful conversations with their family. Everyone is invited to join the challenge and conversation on Facebook and Twitter using #LogOutLookUp
To help families spend even more time together, Boston Market will offer a special Buy One, Get One Free deal for a limited time only. Guests who make a purchase between Sunday and Friday during the week, will receive a special Saturday receipt coupon for a Buy One Individual Meal and a Drink, Get One Individual Meal FREE*.
In my home, family dinners are very important! After a busy day at work and school, it is key to get the kids and myself together without any devices so that we can share about the experiences we had during the day and connect as a family. I get the kids to help set the table and of course, CLEAN UP! The Family Dinner Project is a growing movement of food, fun and conversation about things that matter, offers a variety of resources, including dinner games, conversation starters and even fun ways to get kids involved with food prep.
