9780814433706: Home for Dinner: Mixing Food, Fun, and Conversation for a Happier Family and Healthier Kids

Sports, activities, long hours, and commutes--with so much to do, dinner has been bumped to the back burner.

But research shows that family dinners offer more than just nutrition. Studies have tied shared meals to increased resiliency and self-esteem in children, higher academic achievement, a healthier relationship to food, and even reduced risk of substance abuse and eating disorders.

Written by a Harvard Medical School professor and mother, Home for Dinner makes a passionate and informed plea to put mealtime back at the center of family life and supplies compelling evidence and realistic tips for getting even the busiest of families back to the table. Chock full of stories, new research, recipes, and friendly advice, the book explains how to:

Whip up quick, healthy, and tasty dinners - Get kids to lend a hand (without any grief) - Adapt meals to the needs of everyone--from toddlers to teens - Inspire picky eaters to explore new foods - Keep dinnertime conversation stimulating - Add an element of fun - Reduce tension at the table - Explore other cultures and spark curiosity about the world - And more

Mealtime is a place to unwind and reconnect, far from the pressures of school and work. As the author notes, family therapy can be helpful, but regular dinner is transformative.

From the Back Cover:

"This transformative book will change your family's life for the better. With persuasive research and delightful stories, Dr. Fishel offers solutions that any parent can put into place at home, around the table. You must read Home for Dinner . . . and so should every family therapist in America." —Michael Thompson, Ph.D., coauthor of Raising Cain

Dinnertime has become a rare luxury among today's busy families. Yet study after study shows that no other hour in your children's day will deliver as many emotional and psychological benefits as the one spent sharing food and conversation, unwinding, and connecting. Increased resiliency and self-esteem, higher academic achievement, a healthier relationship to food--these and other positive outcomes have been linked to the simple act of eating dinner together.

Make it happen for your family with Harvard psychologist Anne Fishel's impassioned but practical can-do primer for prioritizing mealtime. Dinner becomes doable with the tips, recipes, and heaps of inspiration packed into this one-stop family-happiness booster. Learn how to:

* Overcome time-constraints, scheduling issues, and post-work fatigue

* Put delicious food on the table with quick, healthy recipes

* Get everyone to pitch in, even the littlest cooks

* Bring gratitude to the table, and avert complaints and conflict

* Satisfy varied taste buds, from picky toddlers to meat-denouncing teens

* Get your family talking, laughing, and engaging with one another

* Keep it up--with minimal hassle, and a lifetime of rewards

Anne K. Fishel, Ph.D., is Director of the Family and Couples Therapy Program at Massachusetts General Hospital and an Associate Clinical Professor of Psychology at the Harvard Medical School. As cofounder of The Family Dinner Project, she has been interviewed by Good Housekeeping, NPR, The New York Times, and other national media. Dr. Fishel writes the popular blog "Digital Family" for Psychology Today.

“There are magical opportunities for tenderness, courage, healing, laughter—and almost everything else it means to be human—when the people we love come together to eat the food we love. This remarkably wise, engaging, lovely book is an invaluable guide to all of us in creating this magic. Give yourself the pleasure of reading it and join The Family Dinner Project.” —Richard Weissbourd, Faculty Director of the Human Development and Psychology Program Harvard Graduate School of Education and author of The Parents We Mean to Be

“Anne Fishel’s warmth, wisdom and humor are the ingredients that make this book such a delight to read. I recommend it to anyone who has the opportunity to eat with others—new couples, parents and grandparents—because while it delights you, it will also convince you that we can and should eat well and do it together.” —Paula Rauch, MD, Director, Marjorie E. Korff PACT Program (Parenting At a Challenging Time) and

Associate Professor of Psychiatry, Harvard Medical School

“Anne Fishel’s book, Home for Dinner is simply delicious. It is filled with helpful suggestions about family dinners rich with fun and good food. The book is packed with recipes for food, conversation and community building. Anyone can read it, enjoy the completely engaging style and learn to reap the health, mental health and family benefits of family dinners.” —John Sargent, M.D., Professor of Psychiatry and Pediatrics, Tufts University School of Medicine

“Anne Fishel serves up a sumptuous banquet of compelling science, clinical wisdom, family psychology, delicious recipes, and a lively, personal style into a single book that will nourish families in mind, body, and spirit.” —Martha B. Straus, PhD, Professor of Clinical Psychology, Antioch University New England

Home for Dinner offers a feast of insights, hands-on advice, and mouth-watering recipes that will equip readers to turn the necessity of eating into an opportunity for growing family relationships, building children’s intelligence and social skills, and nourishing healthy bodies and minds. Research-based, story-sprinkled, and supremely practical—an enlightening read.” —Abigail Carroll, author of Three Squares: The Invention of the American Meal
