Family Dinner Conversation Starters #ShareTheTable

This is a sponsored post written by me on behalf of Barilla, but opinions are my own.

As a mom of five, I definitely know what it is like to be busy! Not only do I drive to the elementary school 3 times each day (gotta love 1/2 day Kindergarten!) but our evenings are even busier-  homework, piano, soccer practice, scouts… we are all over the place  on any given day! As crazy as life is, I try my very best to make dinner a time where we can all be together and have meaningful conversations. It isn’t always easy, and there are nights where I feel like we eat and run, but I know sitting and sharing the table with my family during mealtimes is important, and so I made this little can of conversation starters to help us connect, learn and grow closer to each other.

I covered a can in scrapbook paper and filled it with strips of paper, each containing a conversation starter.

Sharing the table together is an important part of fostering meaningful relationships and building healthy, strong families – families of all kinds. That’s why Barilla wants to inspire, empower and support all families to share more meaningful meals together.


Feeding America is the nation’s largest organization dedicated to fighting domestic hunger through a network of food banks, and Barilla supports that goal.
