ATLANTA, October 13, 2022 (Newswire.com) - Every year, October is recognized as Eat Better, Eat Together Month. While the history of the day is unknown, it is meant to promote better eating habits and encourage people to share more meals together. Champion Chef Lauren Van Liew says it is no secret that spending time with loved ones is beneficial. Eating with family and friends on a regular basis has been associated with improved social skills, better eating habits and fewer behavioral problems in teenagers. It is also helpful for reducing stress in adults, which is something everyone can appreciate this time of year.
