For the second year in a row, AWG and Best Choice are excited to support FMI’s National Family Meals Month this September. This nationwide event highlights the importance of sharing meals together at home with family.
Throughout September, Best Choice will be sharing recipes, blog posts and social media content surrounding the movement to help families enjoy more meals together at home. Find this content on http://www.bestchoicebrand.com
AWG member retailers are encouraged to share this content and utilize FMI’s own free resources that you can gather here: http://www.fmi.org/family-meals
Best Choice is also introducing a new line of recipe videos in celebration of Family Meals Month. The first one is available to use and share from YouTube here:
This family-friendly Monkey Bread Muffins recipe is an excellent way for families to bake together and participate in Family Meals Month.
Why are family meals at home so important? Research provided by the Food Marketing Institute concludes that people eat healthier when they eat together at home. This research also proved that children who share regular family meals together boast better grades, improved nutrition, higher self-esteem and stronger family relationships, among other benefits. However, according to a 2013 Harris poll, only 30 percent of American families share dinner every night. FMI notes that “food retailers are uniquely positioned to make family meals at home easier to accomplish.” So join the movement!
