The B4FD Project features blog posts from guest writers that explore the far-reaching benefits of family dinner.

Family Dinner Month 2012: Sept 17 -- Oct 29, 2012


Here’s to B4FD Month of Family Dinner, 2012 edition

Blog for Family Dinner is excited to be back celebrating family dinner! This time, we are highlighting 3 landmark events in the family dinner movement that are all happening within the next 6 weeks: CASA’s Family Day on Monday, September 24, Cozi’s America Makes Dinner on Wednesday, October 17th, and CSPI’s Food Day on Wednesday, October 24, 2012. Each of these organizations will be sharing guest posts a few days before their event and you can learn more about their efforts to promote family dinner and healthy food for all. We love that so much energy and attention is gathering around promoting family dinner and good food for families. We are thrilled to be part of it and spreading the word about these national events to the B4FD community.

Since we launched this blog in Fall 2011, we have published nearly 100 stories from bloggers all over the US, Canada and the UK, presenting many diverse voices about the benefits and the challenges of family dinner. Moms, Dads, educators, nutritionists, public health researchers, gardeners, and many more have lent their expertise, advice, recipes, and insights on how family dinner can make a difference. As founders of Blog for Family Dinner, Kathleen, Billy and I have learned so much from the individual perspectives of all our B4FD bloggers. So, over the next 6 weeks, we will share our reflections about the past year. Each of us will highlight and discuss a few posts that we feel capture an important lesson or theme. We hope you’ll join us in re-visiting these posts and all the other great ones from the past year. Perhaps you’ll share your favorite with us?  We would love to hear from you!

The B4FD 2012 Month of Family Dinner will be from today September 17 to Monday October 29, 2012, publishing twice a week. Please join us and share your own thoughts and creative ideas about family dinner. Comment on the blog, share your own blog URL for our resources page, and “Like” us on Facebook to join the B4FD community.  Let’s continue the conversation about the importance of family dinner and keep sharing practical tips for making it happen!
