A recent Ipsos polls says 30% of Canadians say that it's challenging to find time to eat meals with friends or family.
Liz Higgins, Public Health Dietitian with the Huron County Health Unit wants to use food to bring people together.
The Health Unit says that children who eat with their families are more likely to have nutritious diets and better grades.
Adults who also share meals are more likely to eat vegetables, fruits, and drink less pop, and older adults have better diets and lower rates of malnutrition.
Tips to find time to share meals include:
1) If evenings are hectic share breakfast meals or invite friends over for a weekend brunch
2) Invite a friend over to try out a new recipe or share an old favourite
3) Have a monthly potluck with friends.
4) Attend a local church supper or community breakfast.
