- always take charge of meal planning and preparation.
- always expect the recovering individual to cook only your favorite foods.
- ask your family members to tell you everything they ate in any given day to help you check up on them.
- ask recovering family members where they’d like to go when going out to dinner.
- compliment shiny hair, color in cheeks, bright eyes, character traits and personality.
- pay attention to the likes and dislikes of the recovering family members.
- let young children have 1 – 2 meals per week they plan (especially helpful if mom is recovering and needs safety at most meals, but needs to take risks too).
