Edison's Healthy Kids Committee Pilots Family Dinner Night
Posted on 11/02/2015

Edison Elementary is piloting a semi-annual program called "Family Dinner Night". They recently held their second event and had ten families work together to prepare and eat a delicious, healthy and affordable 2-3 course meal.

Edison's Healthy Kids Committee brings students and their families together to work with a dietitian/chef and Edison Staff and learn about the importance of sharing quality family time together, though cooking.

The benefits of eating dinner with their family are monumental for students. Children who eat meals with their families are:

  • less likely to smoke take drugs/alcohol
  • have healthier weights and eating habits
  • do better in school and have better communication skills
