    Producer/Host: Sue Mackey Andrews
    Engineer: John Greenman

    Issue: Healthy Social/Emotional Skill Development

    Program Topic: Hungry for Love: Mealtime is more than an opportunity for food

    Key Discussion Points:

    a) Mealtimes provide opportunities for parents and care givers to instill “executive

    functioning” skills in children

    b) These skills are the foundation for learning and include Focus and Self Control,

    Perspective Taking, Communicating, Making Connections, Critical Thinking, Taking on

    Challenges, being Self-Directed, and the ability to Engage in Learning.

    c) “The food is important, but your love, your care and your connections are far more

    important than the food.”

    d) Parents who use their power and love to build mealtime environments help their children

    to be better equipped to thrive in life.

    Guest: Charlie Slaughter, MPH, RD
