So here it is Friday again . . .where did the week go? I guess that is a good sign in that it has been pretty busy in the Haas household. One goal that I have been working towards achieving is reading at least 3 journal articles weekly as a means of staying"abreast the latest medical and nutritional developments and research." Even with my hectic schedule, I was able to reach my goal and wanted to share one of the article's abstract with you. I work with clients of all ages, but find that adolescents and even preteens can be difficult to counsel depending on their family situation. Most do not cook and rely on their parents (who often do not sit down to eat regular meals let alone home-cooked fare) for food. This latest article discusses the importance and direct correlation with healthy eating behaviors linked to family mealtimes. I wholeheartedly agree and am pleased that the findings of the study support this practice. On that very note, I am prepping to have my parents over for dinner this evening and the house needs some cleaning . . .
