  1. My children are all adults and no longer living at home but I never had any problem getting them to the table. They all love to cook and eat so it was an easy task.

  2. Since I live alone, I don’t need to use any tricks to get myself to the table. I enjoy cooking, but try to make things that I can reheat so I don’t have to cook every day.

  3. Our daughter is expected to help Dad make dinner (they both get home much earlier than me), so then we all naturally eat together.

  4. We love eating together as a family. It’s hard sometimes with everyone’s schedules. But my tricks are just to make sure we do it at least once a week!

  5. One tip I use to get everyone to the table is to turn of the tv and cellphones until dinner is finished. I have done this ever since my kids were born so it is just a part of life. We also have family talk time during dinner. It is our favorite time of the day. Thank you so much for the opportunity to enter.

  6. I simply cook a home meal and usually everyone’s willing to come to dinner together (as you can imagine, we don’t eat together often)

    1. I agree! If people have a little control over their meal they eat better and it is more fun! Thanks for stopping by, Sheila

  7. Our family always has met for meals at dinner time so no tricks needed so I don’t have any tips to share. And these look amazing!

  8. A trick I use to get everyone around the table at dinner time is to make it a fun thing. We cook together, share our day and clean up.

  9. I have my family participate in the cooking and cleaning part of the meal so that they feel invested in the meal.

  10. I get them to the table by making it fun and offering something everyone can join in making it. Like a pizza night, I buy mini pizza dough, lay out all the toppings, sauce, seasonings, and we all make our own. We also include a game night around the table. Very fun!
