Fight Crime: Eat More!

September 14, 2009 at 12:51 pm Leave a comment

Well, you may not be able to reduce crime by overeating—unfortunately—but you can reduce crime by having regular family meals. Many studies have consistently found that the more often a family eats together, the less likely the children are to use drugs and alcohol. And less children taking drugs and illegally obtaining alcohol means less crime.

September 28th is Family Dinner Day, according to The National Center on Addiction and Substance Abuse at Columbia University. Take the opportunity to have dinner as a family, and (if you haven’t do so already) rededicate yourself to the idea of family mealtime.

Also, click here for a great video promoting Family Dinner Day.

“If I could wave a magic wand to make a dent in our nation’s substance abuse problem, I would make sure that every child in America had dinner with his or her parents at least five times a week.”
Joseph A. Califano, Jr.
