Why Eating Together is Important

When was the last time you ate a meal with your family? I am not thinking about eating out in a restaurant, but eating a home-cooked meal at your dinner table. I cannot help but notice that fewer and fewer families share their meals together. The situation is alarming as eating at the same table definitely brings people closer together. I cherish all those times when we all sit down for a family meal because for us this is a unique chance to spend time together. Eating together should be a ritual, something that families do on a regular basis. When you teach your children to eat meals together, they will teach their children the tradition.
