This summary explains the research on family mealtimes and the benefits for students. Benefits include higher literacy and vocabulary levels, higher grades, reduced substance use, better mental health, and improved nutrition.

Schools can share resources with families that encourage family meals together, like the Family Dinner Project. Schools can also create out of school time assignments related to nutrition that families can do together. Make it fun, flexible, and accessible for all incomes and cultures.
