Pasta is big at out house and when we shop for pasta we typically buy Barilla. OK, so we only buy Barilla. Ever since I was introduced to the Plus Yellow Box (which is a great source of Protein, Fiber and ALA Omega-3 Fatty Acids *high fives*) it’s been the pasta we grab at the store every time.
Barilla has partnered with Family Circle to examine the importance of quality meal time on parents and children. “The Barilla Share the Table Survey,” which was commissioned by Barilla and Family Circle shares some interesting insights such as…
– Family time is a top priority for both parents (88%) and kids (79%)
– Three-quarters of parents and 60% of kids wish they had more time to spend together
– 71% of parents say they feel more appreciated by their children when they take time to have dinner together and 70% of kids, in turn, actually appreciate their parent(s)more when they take time to share a meal together
– Eating dinner together at home ranked higher in importance than vacation did with 89% of parents and kids citing family time as extremely important
In other words FAMILY MEALS ROCK. Having 3 teens I can tell you how important any time you have their attention is. Connecting as a family is more important all the time as kids are faced with so many tough issues today. I certainly don’t look back on any of our times and say “Oh HAI, I wish we’d eaten fewer meals together”…just the opposite! If I could do it over again we’d spend more time at the table. Eating Barilla. Yellow Box. *blows kisses*
