So Raise your Mitt to Commit to one more meal at home each week, whether it is an evening meal during the week or breakfast on the weekend, gather your family around the table to experience the benefits of family meals.   Follow us on Facebook for Family Meal recipes!

With the start of a new school year, renew your commitment to creating and serving meals at home that nourish your kids’ brains and help them flourish for life. In addition to overall better nutrition, other specific benefits of family dinners include:

  • Better academic performance
  • Higher self-esteem
  • Greater sense of resilience
  • Lower risk of substance abuse
  • Lower risk of teen pregnancy
  • Lower risk of depression
  • Lower likelihood of developing eating disorders
  • Lower rates of obesity

At VG's Grocery, we’re your ally and the solution to your mealtime dilemma.  We’re committed to helping you make shared meals at home fun, affordable, and healthier. Here are some conversation starters for your next family meal:

  • What are you thankful for today?
  • If snow could fall in any flavor you choose, what flavor would it be?
  • What is one thing you did today that helped another person or other people?

Here are a few of our favorite recipes to help you bring your family to the table!
