Eating together keeps a family together

Six out of 10 people believe that eating a meal together regularly is the number one thing that keeps a family together.

More than half of Irish families share a meal together more than five times a week, according to SuperValu's first ever Home Truths report.

Dublin GAA hero Bernard Brogan and his mum Marie got on board with SuperValu to mark the results of the Irish research.

The survey found that some 78pc say they try to cook from scratch as much as possible, with only 16pc of families regarding cooking as an "unavoidable chore".

Ray Kelly, marketing director at SuperValu, said it is very encouraging to see that over half of Irish families actually do get together more than five times a week.

"The report shone a very interesting light on what is happening at mealtimes and what Irish people think and feel about the real value of good food for their family," Mr Kelly said.
