Family Dinner Tip: Take Your Time

Family having dinner together

When they eat together at all, families are eating faster. According to a 2011 survey of 1,000 teens by the National Center for Substance Abuse at Columbia University, 32% of families spend 20 minutes or less eating dinner.

So pull everyone away from their screens, and savor a little extra time with your family. If you need help keeping the conversation going, here are a few suggestions for Family Dinner table games.
