WHY WE EAT – BEYOND HUNGER

Food is such an important part of our lives. As human beings we must eat food for energy.

Food is also an important part in our culture. Food can be the best part of our day, as we sit down together with family and friends to share a meal.

Food is a special part of celebrations, holidays and family traditions. Can you imagine a birthday without a cake & candles, a baseball game without hotdogs, Thanksgiving without pumpkin pie or Christmas without a feast? What are some of your family’s favorite holiday treats?

Sometimes we eat because we are upset, sad, anxious, afraid, angry, bored or too excited. But food does not make our problems go away. What do you do to handle your feelings?
