WHAT IS EAT TOGETHER IDAHO?
Eat Together Idaho is an initiative brought to you by Be the Parents that encourages families to eat regular meals together to prevent underage drinking and youth substance use. Studies show that eating together as a family is one of the best ways to build and maintain strong relationships with your kids. Frequent family meals are linked to lower rates of substance use and stress, and increased self-esteem and academic performance, among adolescents.
