With the entire family on different schedules – especially at the start of summer – we understand that it can be difficult to get the whole family together for one meal. However, even though it might not be clear at first, eating as a family provides multiple benefits that sadly are lost when other commitments get in the way. But there has to be a way to get everyone together for one meal, right!

Of course there is! Rather than eating at home, visiting a restaurant is the perfect place to sit down with your family and enjoy a meal as one. Here are a few of the reasons why we recommend in coming to Bottegin Palazzo Xara for a family meal:

Minimal Distractions

When you’re at home, distractions such as the TV, pets, and people walking in and out can take away important family time and the enjoyment of the meal that you are eating. The good news, though, is that at a restaurant these distractions are greatly lowered, you can enjoy having a family meal, together, in peace. Additionally, as someone else is cooking the food, all you have to focus on is engaging in conversation with those you are with! Sounds pretty great, right?

Learning Experience

Going to a restaurant for meals is the most ideal time for children to work on their social skills and their manners. Although these may be required at home, having meals at a restaurant gives children the opportunity to show what they’ve learned and gives them the chance to improve.Additionally, having interaction with restaurant staff is a perfect way for children to learn social skills and work on communication.

New opportunities

Anyone that has children knows that it’s difficult to get them to try new things, especially in an environment like their home where they feel comfortable and placed into a routine.Eating at a restaurant is the perfect time to break them of a habit and get them to try new foods! Even if they don’t eat something completely different, eating at a restaurant gives them the opportunity to take a bite out of what’s on your plate, and they might love it!

Although these are just three of the benefits of going to a restaurant with your family, it’s clear that finding the time to do so can truly make a difference in your families relationship with each other, you’re able to catch up on how everyone is doing, and develop a stronger bond with your loved ones.
