Recent Flurry of Blog Posts Regarding Family Dinner Research

Share
Love is left out of the eating disorder prevention equation yet again. Eating disorder prevention does not mean following a check list of correct behaviors at the dinner table. It means behaving reasonably and practically with a powerful undertone of love, respect, a glad willingness to listen, honesty confidence to passionately disagree and deep certainty that right or wrong everyone in the family loves and will stand by everyone else. When that is brought to daily life in a family, including family dinners, eating disorders don't have a chance to develop.  Researchers have a tough time factoring love in their studies. I can appreciate the difficulty. I also am dismayed by research results that do not consider the presence or absence of genuine love and respect. Researchers say..."what happens at that table has an impact on teens as well. Juggling schedules to make time for eating together, creating healthy, nutritious dishes, and having positive interactions at the table are all components of healthy family meals." Yes, these are components. Please include love and respect, spacious time, generous listening, appreciations of differences, honesty and room for laughter and shared passions. Now we're talking about family meals that help prevent eating disorders.
