Did you know that eating dinner together as a family can reduce the odds of substance abuse, obesity, depressive symptoms, and delinquency while at the same time improving your children’s grades? Neither did I until reading an article about six months ago. Study after study show the benefits of eating dinner together — and the food is not what is important, it’s the “together”.
My name is Sonia Boudreau and I have three children, 8, 11 and 13 years old. I have worked full time in a corporate capacity for 25 years until recently launching The Modern Family Table. We have had a live in au pair for the duration and my children have always sat down together each night for a family dinner — it may have been at home or in the cafeteria at the gym, but I always insisted they were together with their care giver. Honestly, I don’t know why it was important to me other than it is the way I grew up and I wanted my kids to have much of what I had even though I was not home with them. But after reading that article months ago, I have discovered that data that supports this choice. Then The Modern Family Table was born.
Our goal is to make family dinners possible for your family too. We cut out the shopping, the preparation and much of the cleanup all for a reasonable price — delivered weekly fresh to your door. Our roots have been planted in the Philadelphia Suburbs with Cincinnati Ohio planned as our second market. We are excited that you have joined us for the journey and some good eats!
