Family Meals Month
September is National Family Meals Month™, and that means it’s time to gather your family to enjoy some delicious and nutritious meals! But with varying schedules and taste buds, getting everyone around the table can be tricky. So, let me help you out with a little inspiration from Eggland’s Best!
One way to encourage family meals is to include everyone in the cooking! A family friendly recipe that’s both fun to make and delicious to eat is this Cheese and Vegetable Frittata with Fruit Salad. The vegetables and other fresh ingredients like Eggland’s Best Eggs will give every member something to do like cut the veggies or crack and whisk the eggs! This is a crowd pleasing recipe for any meal of the day, it’s super simple to make and super shareable! And don’t forget to sub out ordinary eggs for Eggland’s Best Eggs because it makes a big difference.
In fact, let me clue you in on how different they are! Compared to ordinary eggs, Eggland’s Best eggs contain six times more vitamin D, 25% less saturated fat, more than double the Omega-3s, ten times more vitamin E, and more than twice the vitamin B12. Plus, they taste great and your family will not want to miss out on meal time when you serve this recipe which can be found below and at egglandsbest.com.
You should also keep in mind that a fresh egg equals a fresh recipe. At Eggland’s Best, freshness and product safety go far beyond industry grading standards. This means that no matter which grade of eggs you purchase, Eggland’s Best eggs will always be the freshest. One less thing to worry about as a busy parent! Plus, independent testing has confirmed that Eggland’s Best eggs stay fresher longer than ordinary eggs due to a wholesome, all-vegetarian hen feed!
Another way to ensure everyone is on board with family meal time is by making a pledge! Did you know the average family only spends twelve minutes together at the table during mealtime? In order to encourage us to spend more time together, Eggland’s Best and the American Heart Association are calling on families across America to take the Family Meals Pledge. All you have to do is commit to spending an additional “dozen” minutes around the table, talking, laughing and enjoying one another. I think we can all handle that!

So, make sure you pick up Eggland’s Best eggs on your next trip to your local grocer. Just look for that distinctive “EB” stamp right on the shell and enjoy family meals month!
