Chinuch Hora'ah of the Day:
[One of the ways in which the Jewish woman establishes the next generation of Yidden is through care in providing kosher food. She nourishes her family members] through serving kosher foods and drinks whose characteristics, when absorbed, affect the nature of the body. This is in accordance with the Ramban’s explanation that one of the reasons for the prohibition of eating the flesh of cruel animals is that doing so imbues a cruel nature within the person eating it. When the food and drink are kosher, the person’s flesh, bones, and blood are “kosher,” and this influences the way that one fulfills mitzvos.
