    We all eat at 5.30pm at the dining table, kids have booster seats. I wish the tv was off but DH likes to watch the sport and weather on the news but it's never anything but the news which I don't mind as much.

    Since having kids we all eat at about 5.30-6pm (my youngest is 17mths). I prefer it now and if my husband gets in late from work he will either eat when he gets in or I will wait and eat with him. I find my LO eats more when we all eat together at the table..

    Toddler probably would like to eat by 6pm, I'm trying to be organized enough (with the help of my old pal crockpot) to make that happen more often. If dinner isn't ready til later we all get crabby.

    We all sit at the dining table, and eat at about 6pm. Breakfast iscat the tabl as well, but depending on what's for lunch, ds either sits in his highchair or just eat as he plays.

    My DS has his dinner in his highchair at 5:30. The rest of us don't eat until later... things are so chaotic at the moment that eating together has become a novelty rather than the norm. I have just gone back to work, my daughter has a job that sometimes ahs her missing out on dinner time etcetcetc. We tired to have DS 20 months eat with us at 6... Dh was making a special effort to be home early so we could all eat together, but that was a disaster because usually for DS daddy walking through the door form work = PLAYTIME so dinner time became a nightmare because all he wanted to do was play.. not eat. So I put his dinner time back to 5:30 for the time being. We will try the family thing at the dinner table again later.

    Breakfast is in the lounge room with telly. He has his own little chair with table attached.

    Lunch is either lounge room or table depending on how messy it is.

    Dinner is alway at the table and tv/phones are off.

    We r bad! We never eat together with DS. Problem is he eats at 5 and DH only gets home after 5 some days and he can't eat earlier than 7 as he just gets hungry again before bed time..

    I used to out DS in the high chair for every meal but he's so heavy and its killing my back so I don't use the high chair anymore. He eats on the lounge. Sometimes watching cartoons, other days we sit on the balcony and he has a little table and chairs, and other times he plays in the lounge while I feed him. He comes for a mouthful, then plays, then back for another mouthful.
