Foodie Friday #003 – Family Mealtimes

Collen’s recent post got me thinking about eating habits. Currently we eat our dinner on the sofa in front of the telly box. I don’t believe this is a good thing really but currently it’s the only time we have to catch up on the soaps and quizzes that we record during the day. We have to watch them daily otherwise our Sky+ box will be full!

However hubby and I have agreed that when Little Miss is old enough to sit in a highchair and eating solids, all three of us will sit at the kitchen table. We do have a telly in the kitchen but it won’t be switched on whilst we have dinner. I’ll have it on for her whilst I cook maybe but no, whilst eating it’s going to be a telly and iPad free zone!

I intend that evening meal times are going to be family time. When she’s older and at school all day, meal times will be our time to catch up on what she’s been doing and what we’ve been doing at work and any other choice gossip. I plan to start this off as soon as she’s old enough to be in a highchair so that she gets into a routine. I actually can’t wait for her to start on solids! It’ll be one hell of a mess but it’ll be fun!

    Dinner time was my favorite growing up. With hectic schedules it was the one place every night our family gathered to share stories of their day. It’s a great tradition to start 🙂

      Same in our house! Dad would come home from the quarry and he, Taid, Nain and I would sit down to eat whatever Nain had cooked for us. The dog would also be sitting around somewhere. There’s a great photo of Dad sat eating casserole with the dog sat on the next chair!

        Awwww, how could I forget the dog? Somehow, there ruthless begging for food makes the entire meal complete 🙂
