Check out even more reasons to take the time to spend family meal time with your kids:

There are not many things better for a family than to simply have meals together. Families, especially kids, benefit enormously from frequent positive family meals:

  • Improves family communication

  • Improves nutrition and eating habits

  • Improves literacy development among preschoolers

  • Develops a protective factor for adolescents against tobacco, alcohol, drugs and low grade point averages

The more meals your family has together, the more you'll enjoy these amazing benefits! And remember, keep the meals positive, lighthearted and fun.


More specifically, according to research by The National Center on Addiction and Substance Abuse (CASA) at Columbia University, children and teens who have frequent family meals:

  • Are at half the risk for substance abuse compared to teens who dine with their families infrequently

  • Are less likely to have friends or classmates who use illicit drugs or abuse prescription drugs

  • Have lower levels of tension and stress at home
  • Are more likely to say that their parents are proud of them

  • Are likelier to say they can confide in their parents

  • Are likelier to get better grades in school

  • Are more likely to be emotionally content and have positive peer relationships

  • Have healthier eating habits

  • Are at lower risk for thoughts of suicide

  • Are less likely to try marijuana or have friends who use marijuana

    My kids are too little for some of the games, but I think they could play "what's missing"...maybe we'll even try it tonight

    "What's Missing" is one of the options! They are loads of them, though.
