7 Habits of Highly Effective Family Dinners
Home cooking may be the solution to the massive health crisis we face. But how do busy families make family dinners actually happen? And when you do make time to cook, how do you get your kids to eat what you make? The solution is simple - and it starts with one new food.

But the reality of actually making family dinner happen on a regular basis, without food fights, is a challenge for many parents.

In my new book, The 52 New Foods Challenge, I share the seven core principles - habits - that lead to highly effective family dinners. The secret is to think like a kindergartener and to start by making it a game.
