Family Dinners and the Health Benefits

A time spent around the dinner table with your family not only gives you the chance to strengthen bonds but also creates stronger family, plus it has big pay offs for children's and teen's health.

It can increase their intake of fruits and veggies so that they get the vitamins and minerals their growing bodies need, reduce the risk for eating disorders, especially among adolescent girls, lead to better grades in school and make them less likely to smoke, drink, use drugs or get into trouble.
