Eating together as a family has many benefits.

Meals eaten as a family tend to be more healthful. They also give families an opportunity to communicate and strengthen relationships. Plus, teens who eat with their family regularly are less likely to get involved in risky behaviors such as smoking, drinking and taking drugs.

On Jan. 1, 2017, the North Dakota State University Extension Service is launching "The Family Table: Eat, Savor, Connect," a program to provide families with tips, meal plans, recipes, and conversation starters to help make family meals happen. The team who developed this program includes Extension food and nutrition and family science specialists.

"The Family Table: Eat, Savor, Connect" website will provide information on monthly topics, such as meal planning, making mealtime fun, cooking basics, buying nutritious food on a limited budget, getting kids involved in meal preparation, and family fitness.  The site also will have links to related events in counties throughout the state.

You'll be able to sign up for an electronic newsletter with recipes and tips, follow the program on Facebook for more tips, meal plans and ideas for getting conversations going during family meals.
