Family style. Dining together isn’t just an age-old family tradition—it’s good for your child’s health! Research indicates that children who share in regular high-quality family meals are less likely to suffer from obesity or excess weight. Because eating habits are formed during the first years of life, and are largely influenced by the behaviors of family members, group meals are an ideal opportunity to begin instilling healthy habits.
