The importance of family dinner

I know it's difficult - and sometimes seems impossible - to gather the family around the table at meal time. But the importance of eating together has so many lasting benefits it's worth the effort. Studies have shown time and again that eating dinner together as a family can lower the risk of obesity in children, encourage and increase the consumption of healthier foods, boost confidence levels and even promote better performance at school. Sounds good, right? To help you get started on the journey to eating together at dinner and easy peasy meal planning check out Canadian Living's Ultimate Family Dinners available on newsstands now.
