Barilla – Share The Table®: Thursday #gno Twitter Party
It’s Tuesday and you’ve created a masterpiece of a meal complete with appetizers and dessert. The table has been set and it is time to call down the family but no one comes down - each of your family members are “too busy” for family dinner. And as you eat that dessert on your own, you wonder what you can do to engage your family and have more meaningful meals together. Don’t worry, you aren’t alone. Did you know that only 11% of Americans say that they connect with their families as much as they would like to?*
The disconnection of families in today’s world is what sparked the desire in Barilla to create the Barilla Share The Table® program. What do you think of when you think pasta? You think of great food, but more importantly, you think of families laughing and sharing around the dinner table. That’s why Barilla wants to inspire, empower, and support all families to share more meaningful meals together.
Barilla’s quick tips to try at your next family meal:
- Get everyone Involved | Get every member of your family involved in the mealtime creation process
- Cut the Distractions | Establish a rule of no electronics for both kids AND parents
- Show some love | May eye contact when communicating
- Have fun |Try playing a game to kick-off the dialog
