Eat Better, Eat Together Month – October 2021

October is National Eat Better, Eat Together Month. Use this as an opportunity to spend time with the original social network (your family at the dinner table!).

National Eat Better Eat Together Month

During October, National Eat Better, Eat Together Month promotes family mealtime gatherings. When families eat their main meals together, they are more likely to get a more balanced lifestyle. What better way to spend time with your family and share your everyday adventures? From 1 October to 31 October, National Eat Better, Eat Together Month inspires you to do just that!

Seems like these days everyone is on the go from work to school to activity to home and then back again. Finding time just to eat anything can be a challenge, much less eating together with your family. But it is not only time to have a meal together, but also a time to communicate in so many ways.

A lot of research has shown that children who eat with their families have fewer academic and behavioral difficulties in school on a regular basis. It can be a time for relaxation and a time to enjoy one another – regardless of age!

It can be a time to try and eat at least one meal together as a family this month (better yet, try for at least five or more meals together this month!). Some of you might think it's your time for breakfast. For others, dinner time is it. Maybe you have only one day a week to connect–just choose a consistent day for your family meal day.

Eating Together

Eating together has many advantages: it provides stability, it is an opportunity for improved contact, it can relieve stress and best of all, it’s fun! 


"Eating alone has been proven to be a key contributor to unhappiness and loneliness" , says Uwe Stueckmann, Senior Vice President, Marketing, Loblaw Companies Limited. "We know that we're better when we Eat Together.  There are so many social, physical and mental benefits associated with the simple act of sharing a meal.  So let's spend more time with the people we love, at the table."

Egyptians hate to eat alone

If an Egyptian is eating and anyone else who can see him is not, the former would most surely invite the other one to eat with him. First of all, Egyptians do not like to eat on their own; they believe that eating in a group will increase their appetite. Secondly, the others may be hungry but they don't say it, they worry. This is shown by many proverbs, such as "Ellie yakol lewahdo yezwar" (that who eats on his own will choke on food), and "loama Haniya tekafi Miya" (a happy morsel suffices a hundred people).To Egyptians, every person visiting their home country is a guest of their house. They will not have you leave her house without eating everything on your plate and more as the Egyptian food will have you full for the whole day!! you must try it! Also, they will indeed help you to have the most amazing time of your life. When you visit Egypt, you will enjoy the best you can.
