September is National Family Meals Month! We’re joining this nation-wide movement that inspires families to eat at home more often and highlights the importance of sharing meals together with your family and friends.
Why are family meals important?
Meals at home with family and friends have been proven to benefit the health and wellness of children and adolescents, to fight obesity, substance abuse, and to make relationships stronger – creating a positive impact on our communities and our nation as a whole. We challenge you to eat one more meal a week at home with your family or friends and join the food adventure.
What’s the Food Adventure?
Our sister brand, Best Choice, created a Food Adventure Calendar. The idea is to take a food-related photo each day of September. The Food Adventure Calendar has a daily food theme. Pick a subject that coordinates with the day’s theme and shoot a photo. Then post it to Instagram or your other favorite social media platform using the #FMMadventure. It’s that easy! There are no rules; just have fun cooking and dining with your family, and then sharing the adventure with our community. Best Choice will randomly select a #FMMadventure participant to receive a product prize pack at the end of September.
