Family Fun at Dinnertime

Stephanie Foster


3. Let the kids pick the menu.

Depending on the number of children you have, you could let each pick one thing they want for dinner. You might get some odd combinations, but at least each of the kids will be happy with at least one part of the meal.

4. Have a theme for the meal.

Get paper plates and decorations to match. Have a little fiesta and eat tacos, burritos, enchiladas or whatever Mexican foods you know how to cook. Go Italian with your favorite pasta dishes and a great salad.

No matter how busy your family is, you should be trying to have a meal together, without interruptions, at least once a week. Plan dinners more often if you can manage it, of course. It is extremely important to keep your family connected and to know what is going on in everyone's lives. Whether you pick a night at random or have to write a date on the calendar and enforce it, you can make having family dinners something everyone looks forward to.
