You can have your family bonding over dinner. With how busy everyone is, the parents are busy with their jobs, the children are busy with their schools and friends, we are rarely able to find time where we can sit together and simply chat. You can talk with your family at dinner, get to know them. Eating together will also help you to teach every member of your family about healthy food and healthy eating habit. It will lessen the chance of your children developing an eating disorder.

For parents who are busy with their jobs, you can simply do small things to bond with your children such as greeting them at the door. By doing this you are letting your children know that you are just as happy to meet them as they are to meet you.
