According to Kansas Family Partnership -- In 2001, the National Center on Addiction and Substance Abuse (CASA) created Family Day – A Day to Eat Dinner with Your Children™ as a national effort to promote family dinners as an effective way to reduce substance abuse among children and teens. Family Day is celebrated on the fourth Monday in September.
Research by CASA at Columbia University consistently finds that the more often children eat dinner with their families; the less likely they are to smoke, drink, or use drugs.
Don't forget to celebrate with YOUR family on September 28, 2015!
