Family meals may boost kids' physical, mental health
It's lovely, isn't it? Gathering around the table at Christmas time and enjoying the company of our loved ones. But family dining shouldn't be limited to the festive season; a new study suggests that eating with family on a regular basis could benefit children's health and well-being.
Researchers have found that children who often ate meals with their family at the age of 6 years old had better social skills and general fitness by the age of 10, compared with those who rarely spent mealtimes with their family.
