We’re celebrating the National Family Meals Movement this September, a nationwide event designed to underscore the benefits of family meals and the role we can play in helping your family share one more meal at home per week.  September is the perfect month to join in the conversation that encourages and inspires people to return to the kitchen to enjoy wholesome meals together. Dinner tables should be for more than just eating. Join the movement and commit to one more meal at home per week this September for #FamilyMealsMovement!

Family Meals create opportunity for connecting and creating memories.

By planning nutritious meals your family can reap even more benefits.  The dietitian team at Food City encourages families to use the USDA MyPlate approach for meal planning. The goal of MyPlate is to offer a simple, straight forward visual guide for building “better for you” meals. The visual emphasizes fruits, vegetables, whole grains, lean protein, and fat-free or low-fat dairy products. 


MyPlate Family Meals should:

Make half the plate fruits and vegetables
Fit in more whole grains
Serve up a variety of lean protein choices 
Feature low-fat or non-fat dairy products or fortified soy alternatives
