There are so many good reasons for families to eat together at the dining table and without television in the background. Not only can you attempt to solve the problems of the world but it creates a forum for family issues to be discussed without having to wait for the ad break! Eating together as a family also allows children to observe their parents' eating patterns and table manners. In addition, families who eat together have a better diet than those who don't.
