Family dinners: Meet and eat

Come and get it!   (Public Domain)
It used to be that Dad would come home from work and Mom would have dinner on the table.  Even sit-coms reflected this paradigm.

Nowadays, parents are both at work, kids are in after-school programs, and dinners are on the run.  Such scattered routines are playing a part in slowly eroding family bonds.

Dr. Anne Fishel, co-founder of The Family Dinner Project, lists benefits of “having regular dinners together.”  These include healthier eating habits and a lower incidence of depression and anxiety.
