Family Meal Time with Ragú #NewTraDish

I am a brand representative for Ragú and have compensated for this post. As always, all opinions are my own.

As a mom to two young kids, it seems we are on the go all the time…probably because we are! From the kids’ activities to work and everything in between, there is never a dull moment. However at the end of the day, we always find time to have dinner as a family. So when Ragú asked me to write about how important family meals are to my family, the answer is easy. Family meal time is priceless.

Not only is family meal time a time to encourage healthy eating habits, conversation, and (try to) teach table manners, but family meal time creates memories. Adam and Greta are boisterous at meal time. They LOVE sitting around the dinner table together, talking to each other, at each other, over each other. Adam likes to relay random facts about his day or sing songs (or make up songs). Greta watches Adam, grinning from ear to ear, chiming in whenever she can at a volume set to be heard. This bond and the memories they create can only get better, making the time that we spend together around the dinner table priceless.

While the time around the table is important, so is finding meals the whole family will enjoy. Ragú has a variety of great tasting, quick and easy recipes that can please even the pickiest eaters, and will become family favorites! In fact, some of our favorite recipes have been inspired by Ragú (especially their No Boiling Baked Ziti!) Each jar of Ragú® Old World Style® Traditional Sauce is packed with 11 juicy tomatoes, making it richer, thicker and just taste better.
