A study in the journal Obesity says children who ate meals with their families, with the television off and staying seated until everyone was finished, had a lower body weight. Researchers also found that children who engaged in meaningful talks with their parents during dinner, especially boys, showed lower body-mass index. Eating meals in the kitchen or at the dining table was associated with lower BMIs in parents as well as children, researchers said.
