"But what we find is that if mealtime is more about the conversation than about shoveling food in, you wind up eating less. You also have the opportunity to kind of talk through the meal -- like, I know what my kids are eating. I know what vegetables they like or don't like. I can explain why certain things are important in the moment.
The kids slow down. They're not just so focused on getting food in. And we all just slow down, in addition to being able to share and get some insight and find out where your kids’ heads are, and figure out if there are any problems, issues, concerns, worries -- that all comes out at the dinner table."
