Author Reveals Secret Ingredients to Fun Family Mealtimes in New Guide Book

Thu, 11 Oct 2012 23:36:52 EST

NEW SOUTH WALES, Australia October, 2012 – Dining with kids gives parents a valuable and unique window of opportunity to really connect with their children. Most families take this wonderful opportunity to connect with each other, whilst some take family meals for granted and don't understand the lasting impact not eating together can have on weight and body issues, emotional issues, relationships and communication. Simply by asking how the day was over a family meal couples, parents, and children can build a lasting connection with each other that will improve the quality of life for the whole family.

Joanne Turner, Author of 'Mealtimes Without Mayhem' agrees with Jamie Oliver who says not eating together as a family is 'unforgivable'. Joanne says, 'Family mealtimes are an opportunity for parents to establish family traditions, encourage healthy eating habits, and be positive role models for their children. Other benefits of family mealtimes include building unity among the family, improved socialisation and language development, and providing children with the most important sense of safety and security.'

Joanne's new book, 'Mealtimes Without Mayhem', shares practical and easy-to-apply tips to help make family mealtimes more enjoyable as family members grow and nurture their bond. Using this easy-to-follow guidebook parents are shown how to manage the mayhem that can surround some family meals, as well as how to feed fussy eaters, create child friendly eating and establish mealtime routines.

''Mealtimes Without Mayhem' is chock full of practical solutions and advice from a diverse range of experts, and features very useful support tools, including a helpful weekly meal planners and food tips to ensure that family mealtimes are well-balanced, and family members experience genuine connections that they can nurture and enjoy – connections that allow their relationships to flourish and grow,' Joanne says.

'Mealtimes Without Mayhem' will be released on Tuesday, October 16, 2012, just in time for American National Family Dinner Day (a.k.a. America Makes Dinner), a nationwide campaign designed to change the way families think about dinner celebrated on October 17.

Author of My 4 Year Old is an ALIEN, Eleanor Wint says, ''Mealtimes without Mayhem' is not just another book about family mealtimes. It is an easy to follow, 'how to' guidebook with practical solutions so you can master the mayhem, nourish your children with good food and nurture the family connection. Finally you will have the support tools you need to successfully manage mealtimes, so start today and make the transition to the family dinner table. This is one of the most effective ways to care for your children's health and well-being.'
