Eat Together

Did you know that eating together can make you and your family healthier? This may seem odd, but studies show that family meal time makes a big difference. Family meal time is good for both adults and children.

Research shows that families that eat together are:

  • More likely to eat fruits, vegetables, and grains

  • Less likely to eat unhealthy foods

  • Less at risk for becoming overweight or obese

Family meal time is especially important for children. It can give them a daily routine and it is a good time for you to connect with them. Eating together is also a good time for children to learn. You can help them start healthy eating habits by role-modeling for them. If your children see you eating well, the will follow your example.

Research shows that children who eat with their families:

  • Do better in school

  • Are less likely to smoke, drink, or do drugs

  • Have stronger social skills

  • Are more connected to their families

  • Eat healthier food
