A lot of families are starved for time when it comes to eating meals together. Dinner may be the only time of the day when they can leave behind their school and work pursuits, and just enjoy some quality time together.

Eating Together can be beneficial


Sharing meals with family is beneficial for the spirit, the brain and the health of everyone involved. According to recent studies, regular family dinners result in lower rates of substance abuse, depression and teen pregnancy.

Studies also indicate that conversations at the dinner table are powerful ways to improve the vocabulary of growing children compared to reading. Eating together also reduces the chance of obesity or eating disorders in both children and adults.

One of the biggest obstacles in getting together for meals is time. A good way to ensure that you have meals ready quickly is to cook in big batches over the weekend, so you can just heat and eat.

It is common these days to eat in front of the TV, however making it a habit would interfere with the simple pleasure of having a conversation. Itís best to eat at the dinner table, and perhaps gather around to watch TV while eating during special occasions.

Preparing family meals can a wholesome experience if every member contributes. Simple dishes can encourage kids to contribute. Most children like to help, and must be encouraged to do so. Many adolescents view cooking as a way of self-expression, and may enjoy preparing a meal or a small portion of it. Sharing all the stages of making dinner like grocery shopping, menu planning, cooking and serving only make it more of a family event.
