Does your family all eat dinner together at the dinner table? We try to eat at the table on Sundays and at least once during the week. We used to eat at the table every night, but latley we've been eating in the living room...

  • We do about half the time. Once my kids get a bit older we will do it more regularly.

  • Everynight we all have dinner together. We look forward to dinner time so we can talk about our day. On occasion we do eat in the livingroom also.

  • We have dinner at our table every night. I prepare delicious and healthy meals and we eat together to enjoy them and to chat and share our day. I wished more families would do this.

  • We have never eaten in the living room, always in the kitchen, on holidays thedinning room, or sometimes in the sunroom when its nice weather. I just carried on the tradition as to how I was raised- we always ate around my Grandparents kitchen table the whole family that could fit, then we had a kiddie table in the same room. I find it easier anyway then taking food into the living room and having it spill on the furniture. You can always buy a small tv for the kitchen if that is what your family likes to do @ dinner.
