We have all heard this so many times:
But eating that fast, doesn't allow our body to do all the complex processes that need to occur to begin digesting the food and sending that signal back to the brain.
One easy way to slow down that eating time is family time at meal time. Talking and sharing the day is a fun way for families to be together and keep up with each other's busy lives. That includes the kids! They are busy too with all kinds of activities and social interactions affecting their day.
Family meal time helps family stay in tune with each other, share wisdom, model healthy eating habits and yes...slow down the eating time.
Enjoy your meal time as a family and help your child build some healthy habits.
