One of the simplest ways to instill strong faith and values at home is to share meals together in an intentional manner. Studies confirm that kids and teens that eat frequent meals with the family do better in school and avoid risky behaviors such as drinking, drugs and promiscuity. To help make the process easy, we have provided several tools including the Meals@Home Guide, multiple mealtime chat recipe cards (see below) and an audio podcast.
