Why are Family Dinners Important? It isn't always easy to eat dinner together as a family. Research from the National Center on Addiction and Substance Abuse (CASA) has found that when they asked teens and parents why they didn't eat dinner more often together, the two groups of people blamed each other.

Research studies, however, continue to highlight the power of family dinners. When you gather around the table, make it count! Talk about what's going on in your lives. Tell jokes. Discuss current events. Make family meals fun! Use this kit with both young children and teens to help plan a quick, quality family dinner, or the ultimate family date night!
