Barilla Share the Table
We all have busy lives with work, school,and other activities, but it is important to sit down together for meals. Barilla knows it is important for the family to "Share the Table" and they have the following recommendations:
Enjoy More Frequent Family Meals
Family meals are about more than just eating. Use these precious opportunities around the dinner table to connect with your family. Get to know one another better and keep up with what's going on in each other's lives. The more often you gather together for family meals, the easier it will be to strengthen that connection.
Allow Fewer Distractions at our Family Meals
Dinnertime shouldn't be TV time, or cell phone time. Tuning out the outside world means tuning in to quality time with those around you.
Better Interact as a Family During Dinnertime
Through Conversation and Lingering at the Table
Once you get your whole family together, focus on creating a welcome environment for talking and sharing comfortably.
Get the Whole Family involved in Creating
Meals, Including Shopping, Cooking, and Cleanup
The best family moments are when everyone is involved. Getting everyone in your household to participate is a wonderful way to make dinnertime feel more special
Improve the Kind and Quality of Food We Eat
New tastes are the key to keeping dinner exciting. Encourage everyone in your family to bring fresh ideas and ingredients to the table
There are many Mario Batali recipes featured on the new Share the Table site. In addition they have more tips and sweepstakes. I look forward to trying more of the recipes.
I wrote this review while participating in a blog tour campaign by Mom Central on behalf of Barilla and received products necessary to facilitate my candid review.
