Family Meals Month

For the third year in a row, AWG Brands will support FMI’s National Family Meals Month this September. This nationwide event highlights the importance of sharing meals together at home with family.

Throughout September, Best Choice, Clearly Organic, Always Save, and Superior Selections will share recipes, blog posts, and social media content surrounding the movement to help families enjoy more meals together at home. Find this content on http://www.bestchoicebrand.com and the other brands’ websites. The brands are also hosting a joint giveaway/photo contest.

AWG member retailers are encouraged to share this content and utilize FMI’s own free resources that can be gathered here: http://www.fmi.org/family-meals

Why are family meals at home so important? Research provided by the Food Marketing Institute concludes that people eat healthier when they eat together at home. This research also proved that children who share regular family meals together boast better grades, improved nutrition, higher self-esteem and stronger family relationships, among other benefits. However, according to a 2013 Harris poll, only 30 percent of American families share dinner every night. FMI notes that “food retailers are uniquely positioned to make family meals at home easier to accomplish.” So join the movement!
