The leisurely family meal, a staple for countless generations of Americans, has been taken off the table by the cold realities of 21st Century lifestyles. Parents juggle long work days, daily commutes, their children’s after-school activities, and endless demands of running a household. There just isn’t time.
But, families that eat meals together reap long-term benefits that feed the body, mind, and spirit. FCCLA is tackling this challenge through its national campaign, FCCLA @ the Table, asking its members to take a pledge to plan and prepare healthy meals for their families.
