Family dinners are actually the most important meal of the day & should make a comeback

It seems like the tradition of family dinners focused on quality time with our loved ones is being replaced with take-out meals and watching TV.

However, New York Times best-selling author Stephanie Allen says family dinner at the table is actually the most important time of the day and needs to make a comeback.

In her new book, “THE HOUR THAT MATTERS MOST: The Surprising Power of the Family Meal,” Allen explains how sharing that evening meal and communicating with each other has a profoundly positive impact on children.

Allen is also the co-founder of Dream Dinners and shares how to fix-and-freeze delicious meals that are convenient for even the busiest of parents.
