Eating as a family in childhood leads to positive health behaviors in adolescence

HPRC Fitness Arena:
A study published in the Journal of Health Psychology found that the more often a family eats together in childhood, the more likely an adolescent is to exhibit effective coping skills, good communication skills AND the less likely they are to smoke and feel high levels of stress in late adolescence.

A study published in the Journal of Health Psychology examined females age 9-19 and found that the more often a family eats together in childhood (i.e. before age 12), the more likely the adolescent is to exhibit effective coping skills, good communication skills AND the less likely they are to smoke and feel high levels of stress in late adolescence. For the full study, see Franko, D., Thompson, D., Affenito, S., Barton, B., & Striegel-Moore, R. (2008). What mediates the relationship between family meals and adolescent health issues?” Health Psychology, 27(2), S109-S117.
