Snag Learning Film of the Week - The Family Meal

This week's Snag Learning Film of the Week is The Family Meal. The Family Meal is a twenty minute film about obesity in America, its causes, its effects, and the disappearance of the family meal in American homes. The film focuses on how developing the habit of eating "family meals" at home can reduce the rate of obesity in American children. You can watch the film and view a discussion guide here.

Applications for Education
The Family Meal could be a good resource for health and fitness teachers to share with their students. After a classroom viewing of the film teachers could challenge students to create healthy "family meal" menus.
