Is “family dinner” an idea of the past? You’ve got to ask the question as more and more factors seem to result in people spending fewer meals with those closest to them. In fact, a recent survey found that the average person eats dinner with loved ones three times a week, with people commonly saying that’s less than what they grew up with. Despite those numbers being on the decline, people do still very much value meals together, with nearly half of respondents saying family dinners are an important way to connect, a good way of making memories, learning about each other, and sharing traditions.
