Use phone or tablet at the table during meals?

I have a 3 & 5 year old and I must confess... I do occasionally allow my 3 yr old to watch phone. Sometimes even encourage it because of how rowdy he can get during meal time. It is so hard to get him to sit and eat most of the time.
I usually put something educational on for him. My 5 year old does not use phon or tablet at table.

No, we don't allow it.  

ETA: My 2yo will often act out at the table but we are working to teach proper table manners rather than using electronics as a bandaid for bad behavior.  Meals are some of the few times we are together as a family and that isn't going to be ruined by electronics.
