Food makes people feel good, sharing a meal as a family can make you feel doubly good! With infants, meal time is important because you are providing them with the food and nutrition they need to grow stronger as well as with the physical contact that makes them feel safe and secure. Meal time with older children provides an opportunity to encourage your children to share with you their likes and dislikes and allows you to encourage them to be open minded and try new things. Meal time is an excellent opportunity for you as a mother to model social skills such as table manners and conversation skills.
