Mamas on Magic 107.9: Table manners at Thanksgiving and beyond


We hope you’ve had a great week. We had lots of fun this week talking about food in our Mamas on Magic segment, because it’s simply one of our favorite topics. We left the radio station ready for lunch after talking about all these delicious dishes we’ll be indulging in next week over the Thanksgiving holiday.

If you’re dealing with a picky child over the holiday, the food can become somewhat of a sticking point. Sometimes it’s not about trying to force the issue with our kids, but teaching them that it’s bad manners to emit a big “Ewwww” when they see something on the table that is on their WILL-NOT-EAT-EVER list.

We also talked about some other holiday-related table manners that will serve our little diners well the rest of their lives.
