Sharing Family Meals Has Health Benefits

How many meals do you share together with your family? A recent review published in Advances in Nutrition, indicates that an increase in the frequency of families eating meals together, may decrease the risk of obesity in children and adolescents. Although future research on this topic is recommended, the authors indicate several health benefits to families sharing meals together.

A lower BMI was associated in youths that ate more meals as a family, as well as increased consumption of fruits and vegetables and decreased intake of soft drinks and fried foods. In the long run, such benefits could be linked to less heart disease and diabetes.

Psychological benefits such as family bonding and child development were also improved. Other studies indicate having more family meals together, can also improve a child’s academic performance.
A family meal can offer nourishment for the mind, body and spirit. Take time to plan and share meals together with your family.
