Meal Time And Fun Time

Here are some ways to inculcate health and interest at meal times:

  • Take a deep breathe and allow yourself to relax while eating.

  • The quality of the meal should be mild and moderate. The food should be less spicy and naturally flavored arousing the appetite of the members.
