Family meals can help children do better in school, stay off drugs, avoid teen pregnancy, reduce their risk of both obesity and disordered eating. We discuss the barriers parents face to incorporating regular family meals into their routine, how this practice is truly doable for anyone, and why we should make it a priority.
