Why are family mealtimes important? Recent studies say that development of adolescent mental health and stability are strongly related to family meals. Study from Harvard Medical School states that nutritional, as well as social, emotional and academic advantages occur in children when families share meals together.
In addition, 15 years of research confirmed that sharing a family meal is good for the spirit, brain and health not only for the kids but for all family members. Conversation while eating is also found out to be more effective vocabulary-booster than reading plus the stories told around the kitchen table help our children become more resilient.
There are just some things we had in our childhood that we want to be passed down to our own kids. I grew up in a household which values meal time. Now that I have my own family, I make it a point to make meal time our family time as well. But eating today has become more than a challenge because of the distractions of modern technology.
One of the things to make meal times more interesting and something to look forward to our family is one thing that we share in the table aside from food…Lipton Iced Tea!
As far as I can remember, my mom loves hot tea. When we were kids, instead of drinking hot tea, especially during summer, we would add ice to make it iced tea. Now the Lipton Tea has a bright new look but same great taste we have experienced before. Iced tea not only makes every meal taste better, but is a positive choice for the whole family.
If you are parents of kids who are picky eaters or have members who just want to pass up meal time with the family I suggest that you refresh your meal routine with Lipton Iced Tea by making iced tea a part of every meal.

Remember that when adults and children in the family eat together you not only enjoy each other’s company but a sense of belonging and mutual trust is also shared. Moreover, family meals can foster family traditions and enhance cultural heritages.
What family traditions did you have as a kid that you want to share with your own kids?
