Want to know what one of our favorite times of the day is? Family meal times. We guess that shouldn’t come as a surprise, since we specialize in meal delivery, but gathering around the table to enjoy a delicious, nutritional meal is something Yana Eats takes very seriously.
It’s all about that quality time
While the food being consumed at the dining room table can obviously be a highlight of meal time, it’s not just about the flavorful feast in front of you – it’s about quality time being spent together as a family. Family dinner is such an important part of life that even Harvard has recognized it with the creation of The Family Dinner Project.
Gathering around the table with a hearty meal is something that can be good for us physically, mentally and spiritually. It’s a way to connect with each other and de-stress from the day. Family meal time can be a way to disengage from our devices and actually communicate with each other.
Benefits of family meal time
There have been numerous studies done on the benefits of family meal time throughout the years, and the various findings have found that there are many physical and emotional benefits, especially for children.
- Higher levels of fitness and lower levels of soft-drink consumption in children
- Better social skills in children
- Lower rates of substance abuse, eating disorders and depression
- Improved self-esteem and resilience in children
We’re on a mission to help bring back and strengthen family meal time. How are we doing this? By providing you with healthy and delicious meal options that are prepared and delivered by Yana Eats. All you need to do is order online, follow the heating instructions and serve.
Yes, it’s really that simple – we cook, you eat!
