Consider sitting with your children and talking about the health benefits and even the financial benefits of eating at home. Here are some suggestions you can do while running this discussion: – Focus on the food they like to eat out most, and how can we make it home. – Consider organizing a help schedule where they help you in the kitchen to prepare their favorite pizza or burger. – Make a money saving jar. When they crave eating out, take the money that you would pay for a take out meal and let them put it in the jar. At the end of each month, they get to buy their favorite toy or outfit with the money instead. – Agree on one time a month or 2 at most where you eat out and consider getting out instead of ordering in. The idea is to spend family good time instead of just eating a take out at home.
