Section 1: Enhancing Family Communication about Food

This section of the FRIDGE curriculum is designed to help families identify and practice key skills that contribute to healthy communication related to family food decisions. Communication learning activities help to make family communication about food easier, more fun, and more effective for family members of all ages.

Communication influences the way a family selects, purchases, prepares, and eats meals together or apart. Poor communication can lead to disagreements or misunderstandings that compromise diet quality.
