Sit Down For Dinner on Family Day

September 25th has been declared Family Day. This isn’t just some random day that has been invented for no reason, Family Day has a purpose, and that purpose is to encourage us to sit down as a family and enjoy a meal together.

So many of us have busy lives. Our work commitments often mean we don’t eat together. Perhaps you get the kids meals sorted early and eat yours later because you’re just too busy. Or maybe you all eat in different rooms because you want to be doing something else at the same time.

However, research shows  that children who eat their evening meal with their families are less likely to smoke, drink alcohol or take drugs. Simply sitting down together for a meal could make all the difference for your children. So why not give it a try?

Cook something special, make sure everyone is free to sit down for a meal together. Ban mobile phones from the table and instead, chat about your day. Make it a time to air your concerns, or talk about your achievements. When your kids open up around the dinner table, you might just learn something. If nothing else, you’ll have a fun, family time.

Why not make it a habit? If you simply can’t all get together to eat every night, then how about making the effort at least once a week. It can be something you all look forward to. Perhaps you can all take it turns to choose what to eat, and perhaps take turns at cooking too?

Family is so important, and we have a range of family license plates available. Perhaps you have a family member with a birthday coming up? Private plates really are the ultimate in personalised gifts.

For mum we’ve got MUM 620, MUM 11E, 8 MA, 63 MA and M800 MOM. For dad, how about 7 DAD, 16 DAD, 91 PA or POP 13? Your sister might just love 135 TER and how about E16 BRO for your brother? Of course your extended family don’t need to miss out either. We’ve got AU02 CUZ for your cousin, AUN 7IE for the perfect auntie plate and for granny? Well how about 20 NAN?

For information and prices on these or any other family private plates, visit our website, email us or give us a call!

Have a super Family Day!
