Family Meals Matter

Family meals not only strengthen family ties, kids who have regular family meals eat better, are less likely to be overweight and do better in school than children who donít. Teens who have regular family meals are less likely to smoke, drink alcohol, or use drugs, and are more  likely to have healthier diets as adults. The older kids are, the more they may need this protected time together, but the less likely they are to get it.
