Abstract

Objective: The cultivation and consumption of food at family mealtime have been central organizing and sustaining activities of human beings throughout history. The gathering of kin around food not only sustains human life but unifies family members and strengthen relationships. Programmatic efforts to either improve healthy meal preparation or strengthen family relationships rarely co-occur. This proposal reports pilot data from a five-state family intervention designed to enhance family relationships and improve healthy meal preparation.
