How family meals support health

Planning and sharing meals is a cherished family tradition in many homes.  This wonderful way of spending time together also helps children learn cooking skills, maintain better health, even learn how to budget during meal planning!  And now a study published in the Annuls of Internal Medicine, suggests that those meals deliver nutrients with even more value than those that come from a bottle
