Can you remember the last time you sat down at the dining table for dinner? Or when you last invited family or friends round for a sit down meal? If the answers are no, maybe you are eating too many meals in front of the TV!
In the past we gathered round the dining table for the family meal and to exchange news and views. Today some children never sit down to a meal with their parents and many families are simply too busy to share meal times. Long working days and different interests can pull us in different directions and relationships within families can suffer as a result.
Cooking traditional suppers can help the weekly shopping budget go further and bring us together. The family eating around the dining table is a symbol of togetherness and bonding, and a recent survey found that 85% of respondents said their most effective way to improve family relationships was to eat together regularly.
At Perts of Arboath we're sure you'll find that perfect dining table to help bring your family together at meal times.
