The Power of Shared Dinners

The Power of Shared Dinners

Time to Connect

Time to Connect

Sharing a meal with family or friends provides an opportunity to connect with the people around you and improve your overall health and wellbeing. Dinners together help make families feel like families and friends feel like friends. They make us feel happier, loved and cared for.    

Studies also show that family dinners help children to improve their academic performance at school. What’s more, if you can involve them in the cooking, they learn important skills about healthy eating that they will carry with them throughout their lives.  Hamish Thomson, General Manager of Mars Food Australia sees the value dinner time brings to families.

Cooking and sharing healthy meals at home is central to our physical and mental health and wellbeing.

We Toured the Country

We Toured the Country

We’re inspired to encourage all Australians... Make Dinnertime Matter 

We toured the country speaking to people about dinnertime and asking one important question: If you could have dinner with anyone, living or dead, who would you choose?   

What we uncovered surprised everyone, watch the film to see for yourself.   David Pearson, Marketing Manager of MasterFoods Australia is a passionate advocate for family dinner time.

 

Making dinnertime a priority with fewer distractions can really focus us on the rewards that dinnertime can bring.
