Family meals, regardless of whether they're consumed at breakfast, lunch, or dinner, provide the opportunity for family members to spend time enjoying good food and each other's company. For many families, mealtime may be the only time when they have a chance to come together as a unit and to share quality time.
As children get older, they are more likely to express their needs and wants when it comes to choosing and preparing family meals. If their preferences are not supported by their caregivers it can lead to food-related and meal time disagreements. Family disagreements can have many causes, the mostly likely being poor communication, a controlling or permissive parenting style, and negative influences from other family members.
