Research about families sharing meals together is compelling: Regular family meals promote healthy eating habits Eating dinner together improves academic performance in school: 52% of children are mostly “A/B” students when their families eat dinner together up to twice a week. The percentage jumps to 64% when they share five to seven meals weekly. Family ties, such as family dinners, create a bond between guardians and their children. Compared to teens in families with strong ties, teens in families with weak ties are four times more likely to have tried tobacco and marijuana, and almost three times likelier to have tried alcohol.
