Family Dinner Together.
The importance of eating together in the family has been shown in studies conducted by the University of Minnesota, Harvard and Rutgers. Research shows that children who eat with their parents will always eat more fruits, vegetables, foods rich in calcium, vitamins, nutrients, and consume less junk food.
Several other studies show that children who eat with family are always lower-risk doing bad behaviors, like smoking, using drugs, and alcohol.
Children from families who are very tied to eating a healthy diet to get better grades in school and low risk taking drugs, smoking, and alcohol.
For children who rarely eat with their families, girls who eat their own night to consume fewer fruits, vegetables, calcium rich foods, and consume more food and soft drinks than girls who ate with his parents. Girls who eat with their parents to consume more calories.
Boys who do not eat with their parents to consume fewer vegetables and calcium-rich foods than boys who ate with his parents.
