Eating in front of the TV

Posted by   + Show Post

Hi all!

Do you let your kid eat in front of the TV? Iet my girl have breakfast in front of the TV in the morning while I get ready. It feels like bad education to me - no attention to food taste and amount, eating more just to get more TV time... you name it. But else, I do need these 20 min to get ready in the morning...what should I do?

We eat our meals at the table but they do sometimes eat snacks in front of the tv ~ only if I'm really busy and I say go ahead and grab a snack out of the kitchen watch a show till I'm done. It's not really a normal thing

No. All food is kept in the kitchen and they eat their meals at the table. Sometimes they are allowed dry snacks in front of the tv for a special occasion, like my sisters (I'm my siblings guardian) allowed to have food when her friends come over to watch scary movies on Halloween, but besides that, no food or drinks outside the kitchen besides water. Just have her eat at the table while you're getting ready, if she finished before you are done, then have her play with her toys for a few minutes while you are finishing.

Wow. You just made me feel so bad. We don't even have a table in our dining room anymore because it was never getting used and we decided to turn the room into something else. Half of our living is a couple couches around the TV, the other half is a small table and some chairs. We almost always eat at that small table or in front of the TV. Always have.

Right now we are eating in front of the tv.  We moved and needed to buy a new dining room set.  Connor eats at the coffee table for breakfast, but no tv is on.

Sure, not all but many dinners are in front of the tv... We don't use dinner time to talk (namely bc when my oldest was younger he always wanted to talk while he happened to have food in his mouth... He thought it was funny lol). We watch family friendly shows or movies.
