Family meals get support from President Obama

I watched the Matt Lauer interview with President Obama during the Super Bowl pregame show. I was so pleased to hear him talking about being happy to have breakfast and dinner with his family. I had read something similar in The New York Times ("White House Unbuttons Formal Dress Code", 1/28/09) last week as well. President Obama's senior advisor, David Axelrod is quoted in that article as follows:

“The chance to be under the same roof with his kids, essentially to live
over the store, to be able to see them whenever he wants, to wake up with them,
have breakfast and dinner with them — that has made him a very happy man.”

Not only can eating meals together make the parent happy, but it has so many benefits for our kids as well. I think it's great that we're all getting a positive example of family meals from the top.
