Abstract

In this chapter, the American family meal is examined. Recent trends in eating by both individuals and families are explored. Frequency of eating various meals, time spent eating, and which, if any, family members participate in these meals are studied. Effects of parental employment, income, and other characteristics indicate the frequency and time spent in some family meals are constrained by resources such as time and by parental work schedules. Foods currently consumed at family dinner tables are presented.
