Eating while viewing TV is mindless eating. You are not paying attention to the Taste of Food and the Amount of Food You Eat.

Families that tune into television instead of each other at mealtime
also miss important opportunities to talk and connect.

Poor eating habits are linked to several chronic diseases, including heart disease, stroke, non-insulin dependent diabetes, osteoporosis, and some cancers in adulthood.
