Westbrook, MN 56 t 83 507-274-6155 Eat Better, Eat Together By Mary Schroeder Health & Nutrition Ext. Regional Center, Several years ago I came across a refrigerator magnet with a family sitting at a table. The words on the mag- net said, "Eat Better, Eat Together." It is a simple magnet, but has a" significant meaning. Eating together "as a family promotes good nutri- tion. Studies have shown children who eat with their family at meal times eat more fruits and vegetables They also consume less pop. Most families today are caught in a time crunch. Youth may have sports prac- tice, dance lessons, and music lessons to attend in addition to doing their home- work. Parents have meetings to attend, clothes to wash, and the house to clean. With all these demands on the family, how can everyone in the family find time to sit down to a meal together? Here are a few ideas you can use to get started. 1. Start Slow, Learn as You Go. Don't try to go from no family meals to nightly family meals. Consider starting with one meal together each week. Review everyone's schedule and find at least one night when your family can sit down together for a family meal. 2. Get Children Involved in Making Meals. Children, especially younger children, like to help with meal preparation. Find easy things they can do such as tear the lettuce or put fruit in a bowl. You can get teens involved by having them help plan the menu, go gro- cery shopping, and prepare some of the menu items. 3. It Doesn't Have to Be Hot to Be Healthy! Don't feel that a family dinner needs to be turkey with all the trim- Annual Transportation meeting scheduled The Southwest Regional Development Commission's Transportation Committee will be holding their Annual Committee Meeting on Wednesday, June 2, 2004. The meeting will begin at 1 p.m. at the Murray County Government Center, Slayton. Agenda topics will cover nomination of Regional representatives to serve on Area Transportation Partnerships 7 and 8, dis- cussions with the MnDOT Districts from Mankato and Willmar regarding trans- portation projects, legisla- tion, bonding, district plan updates, County ten ton route project, as well as other transportation issues brought forward at the meeting. Public is welcome to attend. If questions please contact Annette Bair at the SRDC Office 507-836-8547, Ext. 101. mings. Tuna sandwiches, a salad, and frozen yogurt can be just as healthy and tasty for your family as a meal you spent hours preparing. 4. Cook it Quick, But Eat it Slow. Check out the many cookbooks and Internet resources that offer tips for putting together healthy meals in a hurry. For starters, check the U of Nebraska "Cook it Quick" website. HYPERLINK "http://lancaster/ d/ciq.htm" lancaster.unl. edu/food/ciq.htm. Though you may hurry meal prepa- ration time, allow ample time to enjoy the meal with your family. 5. Focus on Food Choices versus Forcing Food. Meals together should not become a battle ground. Encourage children to devel- op healthy eating attitudes through choice and not bribery. Instead of forcing a child to eat a certain food, offer a variety of nutritious foods and let the child make the choice of what to eat. 6. Turn Off the TV and Don't Answer the Phone. Make the most of dinner time. Turn off the television and don't jump up to get the phone. This is a wonderful time to share with family members what went well in the day and what is new in the lives. If your family is eating together that is great! Keep up the good work. If it has been awhile since your fami- ly has sat down to a meal, make a commitment to have one family meal this week. Remember, "Eat Better, Eat Together."

What I witnessed does not represent the best of America and does not rep- resent our men and women in uniform.
