Although the Swedish version puts a lot of importance on the foods you’re eating, it doesn't have to be a calorie-buster, junk-food kind of day. I think the main thing to take away is that it’s a great excuse to squeeze in some family time in our busy lives. By making it a weekly tradition, and even giving it a name, we are creating some excitement and making it easier to stick to!
- Let your kids take turns to pick what’s for supper on Fridays
- Save a special treat or dessert that the family can share for Fridays, involving the kids in making the treat yourself adds to the family time spent together
- Pick the activity that fits best with your family. Cozy Fridays could mean game night, or movie night, or build-a-fort-and-read-stories night. The idea is to have fun together as a family, whatever that looks like for your family.
- Wash, rinse, repeat - make this a regular weekly even (when possible) so that you and your children can count on, and look forward to this day every week!
