New data released by Rutgers University, suggests kids who eat more meals together with their families at home, tend to eat less junk food and more fruits, vegetables, fiber, calcium-rich foods, and vitamins.

The study also showed that  teenagers who ate at the family table more often, showed fewer signs of depression and were likelier to feel that their families were more supportive.

Sounds like family meals at home can pay off in more ways than one.
