How often do you eat dinner at the table?

We try to do this at least 5 days a week. We all eat together. We turn the Tv off and ignore the phone.

  • We do it every night. I think it's important to sit down as a family for at least a little bit of time out of every day.

  • Never. Don't have a kitchen/dining table.

  • We try to every night. Lately though we have been hitting the fast food too much and haven't been sitting at the table as much. But we have decided to give up the fast food again, so back to the table for us. I love sitting at the table. My boys eat more when they are at the table and it is a more relaxing meal time if we are at the table.
    My husband's family never ate at the table, my family always did. I told my dh in the beginning it was important to me for us to eat a the table nightly and he agreed.

  • We do it four days a week, because I only cook 4 days a week, monday through thursday, friday on out, everyone is on their own! But it is very important as a family to do this, specially when the kids are small!

  • Every dinner we sit at the table, none of em have a choice because I won't let them eat in the living room, I don't want crumbs all over everything! LOL.

  • Every night, even if it's only one of us and the little one. It's a good habit to get into.

  • Never, we have galley kitchen which is too small for a table and no dinning room. We did have one guest over for thankgiving once and we put a card table right in the middle of the living room.
