Benefits of Family Dinners

Many Americans celebrate the winter holidays with traditional rituals like getting a Christmas tree, volunteering at a food bank, or preparing family dinners. Nowadays with parents’ and children’s increasingly busy schedules, family meals are generally reserved for birthdays or special holidays. However, studies show that sustaining the ritual of family meals all year long can have lasting health benefits to you and your family!

Research shows that children who take part in regular family meals:

  •  Eat more healthy foods and are less likely to be overweight
  •  Have less delinquency
  •  Have greater academic achievement
  •  Have improved psychological well-being (lower risk of depression, suicide, and eating disorders)
