OTHER THAN FOOD FOR FAMILIES ENCOUNTERS: BEYOND THE MEALS AS UNIQUE SOURCE FOR FAMILY MEMBERS’ MEETING

  • WHY

    • Relevancy: this is a relevant topic in today’s world as for many people family gatherings are happening mainly at the table, too often accompanied by over-eating and over-drinking
    • Health concerns: habits of focusing on the food could have a serious impact on health
    • When a family lunch or dinner lasts for 2 to 3 hours, we take too much food and drink, which damages the health.
  • WHO

    • The topic is related to family encounters, meeting and gatherings and that is why the training activities will be done by the families
    • Every family member will take part in the process
    • The adult members will be role models for the younger generations, giving them good examples of alternative healthy ways to spend quality family time
    • The children will be receiving and applying the good example of the adult family members
  • WHICH

    The aim of the training on this topic will be to show that there are plenty of options and alternatives, other than eating and drinking at the table, for the families to spend quality time together in a healthy and enjoyable environment.
    Enrich family gathering’s experience: discover other enjoyable ways of spending time with the family
    We can point out two approaches to this "topic":

    1. First, instead of a long Sunday lunch or dinner, the family can visit a sports event, horse riding, farm or farmer’s market, concert in the park, local festival etc.  The event has to be interesting for all family members!
    2. And secondly, when it is a family gathering "on the table" – lunch or dinner, there should be additional activities, so less time is spent on the meal itself, and more of a variety of interesting entertaining activities, games, quizzes, storytelling etc.
