During my childhood time, the traditional family dinner meant to spend joyful time with the family. Dinner time of the day was to relax, recharge, laugh, tell stories, and catch up on the ups and downs among the family members. Laughing is the simple format for nourishment. My mom was a great chef. The meal seemed like a feast that welcomes all guests, carried no condition, any argument that happened among each other would settle over the table, and everyone got the pleasure to enjoy the food. What does the family meal look like today? As a working mom, I almost always in a hurry to go for fast and convenient cooking to feed the family's stomachs. Eating together, and never allow the TV and mobile device to rob the time for the conversation with the kids. The child might tell you someone was bullying him in school and felt upset. It would be great to get them to tell their thinking about what did they learn from the failure when they tried to solve an interesting problem.

Quality is more important than quantity. Children love the taste for sweets, almost always are junk food or drinks, that cause them overweight.
