Eat More Meals Together
Studies have shown that kids who eat dinner with their families tend to eat less fried food, drink less soda, and consume more fruits and vegetables. Those kids also have a higher intake of vitamins and nutrients and a lower intake of saturated and trans fats. But even beyond these practical reasons, a regular family meal provides a way to keep the lines of communication open and strong.

As a reminder, always consult your doctor for medical advice and treatment before starting any program.
