Video transcript for eat together as a family when you can

[Music, meal time sounds and muffled conversation throughout video]

Voice

It takes a little work to bring everyone together for meals. But it's worth it and the whole family eats better.

[Baby sounds]

Voice

You may not be able to eat together every day. Try to have family meals most days of the week. Weekend breakfasts or lunches count too! If your baby is in a high chair, bring it up to the table. Talk together.

Mum

He did well - he had a revision.

Voice

Eat meals together as a family from the start. That way, it becomes a habit.

Mum

You forgot! You learned how to point your toes.

Voice

Your baby can start learning about food and eating by watching what you do at mealtimes.

Mum

Do you think Luca's having fun with his bowl?

Voice

Create a positive mealtime environment. Try not to worry about spilt food and drinks.

Mum

Do you know what was the best thing that happened to me today?

Voice

Focus on the meal and each other. Turning off the TV and phones can help make meals a stress-free time.

[Laughter]

Mum

Oh yucky, yucky, yucky! Eat it up!

[Laughter]

Mum

That's just being silly Luca - you have to leave it in your bowl!
