Why Family Meals Matter

Study after study provides significant, measurable scientific proof about the positive, lifelong benefits of family meals. Family meals nourish the spirit, brain and health of all family members. Just by preparing and eating one more meal at home with your family, you could create positive change amongst the members of your household.

  • Regular family meals are linked to higher grades and self-esteem.
  • Kids and teens who share meals with their family three or more times per week are signi cantly less likely to be overweight, more likely to eat healthy foods and less likely to have eating disorders.
  • Children who grow up sharing family meals are more likely to exhibit prosocial behavior as adults, such as sharing, fairness and respect.
