My M&S Magical Dining Room

I love my dining room. We use it each and every day and we eat together as a family 5 out of seven days as week.

I also make sure that we eat breakfast together when we can too. Growing up we had family dinner times and those times all at the table hold special memories for me, of good times, conversation, family and food.

I believe that children learn good manners and are also more adventurous eaters when they eat with the rest of their family. Also it is a great time to catch up on what everyone has been doing each day,

I am also a great believer in not keeping things for best.  So we all use the china, glasses  and good cutlery too.

My family dining table is somewhere we gather, where homework is done, where board games are play and where we do jigsaw puzzles as a family.  It is also the place where most of the art and crafts in the house are done.

I find if we eat together I only have to prepare one meal and the boys will eat what we eat.  

Do you eat together at a dining table?
