More benefits of eating together as a family

More and more evidence suggests that making time to eat together as a family is right up there among the best things you can do for your growing kids. Now a study on eating behavior indicates that kids who eat together with a family eat better, even if the family all eats in front of the TV. The study, published this month in the Journal of Nutrition Education and Behavior suggests that the best way to get kids to eat right is to prepare good food and put it in front of them. It appears this is even more true with girls, who ate more poorly than boys when eating alone. Interviews with other experts in an article in the New York Times suggests that families with difficult schedules make the effort to have that family meal, even if it is breakfast. Especially with teenagers, this is sometimes the only chance busy families get a chance to catch up and parents get to follow changes in their kids.
