Family Mealtime


  • Quality time for child and adult interaction! Family dinner provides time to share activities from the day or discuss upcoming events.
  • A food health connection! Eating together provides an opportunity to talk about and model good nutrition and health behaviors.
  • Passing down cultural and family identity! Family dinners provide an opportunity for sharing family stories and creating memories.

Texas A&M AgriLife Extension Service in Hidalgo County will be promoting the importance of celebrating family mealtime by posting 30 Days of Family Meals.  

Each recipe will also feature tips and ideas to help make dinnertime at your house something to remember.
