Ruth Langsford has shared her top tips for family mealtimes

1. Get the whole family together as much as possible: With different working hours, homework deadlines and social plans it can be very tricky to spend quality time together as a family. Try and schedule a dine-in night at least twice a week where you can eat dinner together and talk about your days.

2. No phones at the dinner table: Family mealtimes should mean quality time together. With a no phones rule, everyone gets to spend time together chatting and enjoying a delicious dinner.

3. Use your freezer: It can be difficult to find healthy options that everyone will enjoy during a busy week but having delicious meals in the freezer means there will always be something quick and tasty ready to be served.
