Setting aside time to eat together

If you haven't been doing so already, start eating with your kids as many times a week as possible.

According to The Atlantic, a study conducted by the National Center on Addiction and Substance Abuse at Columbia University has found that "children who eat dinner with their parents five or more days a week have less trouble with drugs and alcohol, eat healthier, show better academic performance, and report being closer with their parents than children who eat dinner with their parents less often."

It doesn't have to be a super fancy or trendy meal each and every time. It is the quality time spent together during mealtime that matters most. According to Elizabeth David, the American culinary evangelist, enjoying basic meals with loved ones makes for the best eating, and the equation for physical and psychological well-being is easy: Eat simply and eat together.
