As we all know that the 22nd of March has been declared as Janta curfew by the central government. This has been done because of the Coronavirus plaguing the country and the entire health. The government wants to desperately prevent any gatherings, meetings at any place, to prevent the virus from spreading. Now, this is a perfect opportunity to cook healthy and delicious food for the entire family. The main advantages of eating healthy and delicious meals together as a family are aplenty. They are mentioned below.
Having Family Meals Leads To A Big Boost In Development
Children should always have family meals since they listen to parents talk about serious issues. This leads them to listen to new words, narratives, and explanations. The kids will learn about new ways to express themselves, which is not possible if they sit in front of the TV or computer.
Family Bonds Are Strengthened By Eating Meals Together
This is a fact that has been proven scientifically. Kids, who have meals regularly with the family, are much more likely to have a close relationship with both their parents. They will also have excellent ties with their brothers and sisters. Having meals with the family is more about the quality time, which you spend together.
School Grades Get Greatly Enhanced
It has been proven beyond doubt that school grades are greatly enhanced if children have meals with their families. This happens due to the routine and structure which family meals bring. Kids can also discuss their school issues, which they faced in the day time and look for answers to their problems, rather than finding it on their own.
Improved Physical Health
In a survey, it was discovered that children who eat family meals regularly have good health overall. They are much less likely to have health issues like vomiting, having diet pills, smoking, fasting, skipping meals. Also, it has been observed that families who have meals together, also participate in other activities simultaneously like sports, recreation, etc.
Making Good Nutritional Habits
You should always cook healthy meals which consist of consuming lots of fruits and vegetables, less fried foods, less saturated fat, and lots of vitamins and other nutrients. Restaurant food will be missing natural ingredients and will be having lots of preservatives and flavors, which are detrimental to the health of the body. If you prepare your meals at home, then you can decide between good and bad preservatives and add only the good ones.
Cooking At Home Is Very Economical
Apart from the fact that on Janata’s curfew day, all hotels and restaurants are closed, so you have to prepare meals at home. But, you must also realize that cooking meals in your home, is also very cost-effective. The meal at your home is much more cost-effective than eating outside.
Routine Is Inculcated In Your Child
The very fact that the child has to eat a particular time daily in the morning and evening is a testimony to the discipline in his/her life. He learns the art of routine and discipline in his life.
