HealthDay (3/26, Preidt) reports, “Having regular family suppers is good for teens’ mental health,” according to a study published in the April issue of the Journal of Adolescent Health. Researchers arrived at that conclusion after having “examined data from about 26,000 adolescents, aged 11 to 15, who took part in a 2010 study on health behaviors in school-aged children in Canada.” Notably, “the positive effects of family mealtime were the same regardless of gender, age or family income,” the study found.
