3. Ditch the tech. This should seem obvious, but it’s worth repeating: Family dinner should be about connecting with one another, not checking Facebook. Don’t allow phones, computers or TV during meals. “Focus on the human eye-contact connections,” Goldfarb says. “It builds great conversation skills and social skills for kids.”It’s OK to make exceptions, she adds, such as eating dinner together as a family while watching big events like the Super Bowl or the Academy Awards, or having a pizza-and-popcorn movie night on the weekend.4. Get everyone involved. If possible, have each family member be responsible for planning and cooking a meal one night a week. Encourage kids to smell spices and choose which one to add to the recipe. “The more they feel like they have control, the more likely they are to eat the food,” Goldfarb says.
