The Active Family Project & The Importance of Family Mealtime

Research continually suggests that family meal time is a crucial component in deepening familial bonds and fostering a healthy lifestyle.  Studies also indicate that sitting down together at mealtime can boost a child’s vocabulary and help development in many different ways.  For many families, carving out family meals and playtime can be a challenge.

This past month was National Nutrition Month and I was invited to interview author and entrepreneur Laura Fuentes about her role in the Active Family Project – a health and wellness initiative aimed at helping families take back family playtime and mealtime.  In addition to her well-known blog Superglue Mom, Laura is the Founder/CEO of Momables – the first meal-planning service for healthy and fresh school lunches.  And as a member of the Active Family “Play Council”, Laura has insight into the importance of incorporating playtime and family mealtime into busy motherhood.
