Meet Our Guest
We had our friend Kate Tellers on the show to talk about how their family handles the nightly meal, which includes feeding their kids before the adults in the family eat. She shared why they go this route, why it works for their family, and why not having regular family dinners actually works better for their family.
This is super eye opening and reassuring if family dinners where everyone sits down at the table together aren’t happening in your house. Because it’s both not always possible and there are other ways to make sure that you’re getting that quality time in.
More from the Episode
We talk about a poll we did to get at how many of us are (and aren’t) doing family dinners and it’s super illuminating. We shared lots of stories from readers about how they balance schedules and meal times and would love to hear your dinner struggles too.
And here’s the bready, cheesy strata we talked about from Deb Perlman.
