Activity: Manners for All Meals

• Come to the table with clean hands and face. No one wants to look at a dirt-covered face while eating.
• Put your napkin on your lap. Use it to wipe food off your face or fingers. It will also protect your clothes in case you spill or drop food into your lap.
• Start eating when everyone else does – or when given the okay to start.
• Stay seated and sit up straight.
• Keep elbows (and other body parts!) off the table while eating.
• Chew with your mouth closed and don't talk until you've swallowed.  Look in the mirror and chew with your mouth open, after this, it will be obvious why this is an important rule.
• Don't make bad comments about the food. Someone has spent time and effort to make the meal and negative comments can only hurt feelings.
• Say "Please pass the ---" instead of reaching. Saying please changes a demand into a request.
• Don't make rude noises like burping or slurping. And if a burp slips in by mistake, say "Excuse me."
• Chat with everyone at the table. You can have that intense one-on-one talk that excludes everyone else later, when you and your friend are on your own.
• Ask to be excused when finished. You can also offer to help clear the table.
• Thank your host and whoever prepared the meal.
