  1. Harmful exposure: increasingly video content intended for children and adolescents is interlaced with the subliminal or disclosed advertisements of unhealthy food products; these have a significant effect on the consumption and nutritional habits of the young viewers.
  2. The parents involvement in the eating habits of the entire family and mainly of young children helps them develop healthier eating habits also in their adult life.
  3. Several studies have found that one family meal a day may reduce the teenagers risk of obesity later in life.
