Eat as a family when you can.
Sharing meals with your children has an incredible number of health benefits. Studies show eating together can do things like lower rates of obesity and eating disorders in kids and adolescents, contribute to higher grade point averages, increase self-esteem and improve vocabulary. It can also decrease the likelihood of substance abuse, teen pregnancy and depression.
