When is the last time your family sat down to a family meal together?

The benefits of eating together as a family are numerous for children – from better grades in school, better communication skills, decreasing risky behaviors and better overall nutrition.

Yet, despite these health benefits, only 30 percent of families make time to eat one meal together each day.

October is “eat better, eat together” month and Rebecca Turner, a dietitian, and host of Good Things is challenging you to get around the dinner table more often.

Get started with this easy and delicious Shrimp Sheet Pan recipe provided by the Dairy Farm Families of Mississippi (The Dairy Alliance).
