How important is it to you to sit down at a table and have a family meal?


What are some of the benefits of families eating together at a table as opposed to sitting on the couch or everyone eating their own thing? Do you feel that it helps in the feelings of self esteem if families share not only meals but conversation and events of the day? Do you remember the days when families had specific times for meals and enjoying foods which were prepared by your mother or maybe even grown in the family garden. Can just the smell of certain foods trigger warm memories? Are our children being deprived of those wonderful memories due to the decline of Family meals?
