In an effort to help educate families across the country, busy mom and actress Haylie Duff has partnered with Eggland’s Best to share what works for her family, from creating extra time at the table to dishing out delicious meals her husband and kids love.
September is National Family Meals Month: a month dedicated to promoting the benefits of spending more family time around the table while enjoying nutritious meals.
“I’m focused on teaching my two little girls good eating habits, but also it’s a great way to all get around the table together,” Duff told The Daily Buzz.
76% of parents say it’s important to enjoy meals together as a family but finding the time and the right ingredients for a healthy meal can be challenging.
“I sneak in the nutrition by using really great ingredients. Eggland’s Best Eggs are far superior to other eggs. They have six more times vitamin D, double omega-3’s,” said Duff. “Your kids mimic what the parents eat, so you have to eat the healthy foods. So, I get my kids involved in the kitchen and they help me prepare the meals that they will eat…so they eat.”
