Family Dinners at Table = Less Overweight Children

Healthy kids ‘eat dinner at the table’

A recent study published in the Journal of Pediatrics shows kids who sit at the table to eat dinner with their families are less likely to be overweight, according to new research. Children who ate a
traditional family dinner with their parents three times a week were 35% less likely to develop eating disorders such as bingeing, 20% less likely to eat junk food and 12% less likely to be overweight. These children were also 24% more likely to eat vegetables and other healthy foods.

Hmm…food for thought?
