Study: Family Dinners Make Healthier Families

News

FAYETTEVILLE, Ark. – Having dinner around the table can lead to a healthier family.

Researchers at the University of Minnesota looked at survey data from more than 1,300 young adults.
    
Those who had regular family meals ate less fast food.
    
They also tended to have fewer symptoms of depression and higher self-esteem.
    
Young adults who did not start family meals until they were parents themselves still had many of these benefits.
