It’s a fact – the more you eat together, the better. Family meals build so much – confidence, caring, communications – the tools and skills our children need to navigate a busy, distracting world. The original family meals benefit data came from the work of Center for Addiction (https://www.centeronaddiction.org/), which has been promoting more family time, including family meals, since 2001. Price Chopper has been supporting that idea for many years, including the last 10 years in partnership with Eat Smart New York SNAP-Ed and Cornell Cooperative Extension educators throughout New York (learn more here). The CASA data, and work since, clearly shows that family meals can be a powerful protector and promotes more healthful eating for every age and stage. We are always striving to bring you great food and meal solutions that feed your family well.
