I have come to this topic when I watched a TV program, with 8 family members.They were supposed to have a dinner together but some family members bring food in front of his PC and one is watching TV while having a plate of food.And some are in the couch.lol For me food has a proper place to consume it.I usually have my meal in my dining table and I can't really bring food everywhere in the house. Maybe some of us can enjoy food while watching TV while relaxing or somewhere in the house you feel comfortable to eat your meal. I would love to hear from you my fellow myLotters.Good day everyone!

I understand how you feel about food being consumed at a certain area. Makes sense but with my illness and arthritis I can't go up and down stairs so I just eat in my room. We haven't been a true family for quite sometime anyway. It is all in the family dynamics and that is pretty odd.

Hello celticeagle, That's an exemptions of course if you can't go down to the stairs at it should be brought to you that's really necessary.Practice in that sense is just needed when it has used to do it that way otherwise its alright not to abide on that. Thanks and Good health always

To be clear, stay where you feel comfortable when consuming food, its good to stay in the dining table when having meal but if you can't really do it its not necessary to abide on it. It must be a good practice but in your situation,sometimes its pretty hard for you..Keeping yourself safe is the most important in this.

I'm single, so there's really no family meal. As such, I eat everywhere in the house; that is, at the table, at my computer, watching tv, standing by the kitchen sink...but not my bedroom, that's reserved for sleeping and napping.

And I can eat dressed, undressed, in my pajamas, in my shorts with or without a top...and no one will ever comment on whether I'm dressed appropriately for the occasion!

Food is best enjoyed at the dining hall with the fellow family members. Well, I love my food in the dining hall, but I do eat snacks in front of my PC. The couch is not my place certainly.

Hello kar, Yes, I agree with you its a warm feeling enjoying food with family members in the dining hall. I'm doing the same too when I eat snacks or desserts I would bring in front of my PC either watching TV. Thanks for sharing and Good day ahead!

At my mom's house, we bring our dinner to the living room coffee table and watch a movie together. We rarely have time together as a family so I guess we try to multi-task when we're together and fit dinner and a movie in at once. Growing up, we just spent more time eating in front of the tv together. We used to eat at the dining room table when my dad was still living with us, but he never ate with us. He'd yell and go hide in another room. So we thought, well if he can eat in front of a tv so can we. At my boyfriend's house, where I spend most of my time, we have to eat on the bed. It's a tiny one room place and we don't have a proper place to eat at. We bring a little table to the end of the bed and eat like that. I'm hoping to buy some stools so we can start eating at the counter at least cuz I'm tired of finding crumbs in the bed ;p

Hi lynn, Wherever we consumed our food when we are with our family members its a nice feeling ever.No matter we have that practice or not we can still enjoy food with them while watching television and so on. In your home now, its also like so sweet with your bf to sit together and enjoy meals in the bed..I would love to try that next time . Thanks, take care always.

Yep as long as you're with family and enjoying each other's company, then it doesn't really matter where you're eating. Eating in bed is nice, as long as you don't spill on the covers ;p You take care too sweetie!

I also like to have my food in my dining table only. Sometimes my family members ask for serving the food before TV - so that they can enjoy watching it. But I strongly suggest them to eat in the dining table and the food time should be a family time. I love to chat with my family members while having food. Watching TV will just make us to listen to the TV only. We would not be able to chat and the idiot box would surely dominate us. So I avoid having food before TV. So my choice is always a dining table.

Hello cloudie! We consume our food in the family's dining area because we're very much comfortable there being seated in a proper area where food should be consumed. Well, others might enjoy eating in some other areas in the house and i cannot blame them if they are happy and comfy being with those particular areas, as we all know people are alike and different in so many ways, its just that im used to eating in the dining room of ours because i could enjoy my meal without worrying of little space, incomplete food or careless moves especially when im eating in front of computer where any moment, my drinks might spill or my food might dropped in the keyboard. I don't want to eat in the living room in front of the TV because its a private thing for us to share our day's experiences while enjoying our food in our dining room, where even the simplest dish will be extra special when we eat all together. Good luck and stay happy!

My gabs, As long as you feel comfortable about it that's alright when we are living alone we can do whatever we want so its just normal to bring our food anywhere we feel relax when we consumed. Thanks and Take care always

I admit, here in the apartment, I eat food everywhere, usually in my room on my bed. Heheheh. But now I'm trying to eat as much as possible in the dining table, cause it's a waste if we're not going to see it. LOL. Back in the home of my parent's though, we can't eat anywhere but on the dining table. They are fairly strict about that since we were young. We can watch tv while were eating, since the television is adjacent to the dining area.

Hello ing, Miss yah where have you been? Its sounds like you enjoy food while having food everywhere huh, I love bring my snacks infront of my PC too lol. When we are of course in our parents home they were a bit old fashioned so we can't just walk away from from the dining table unless the meal is over..Thanks and Good day

My wife and I seldom use our dining table. It's just too big for us. So it's either we bring the food in our room where we feel much more comfortable eating or we dine out the garden to get a really calming ambiance... that is if we are on a romantic urge. We do almost everything inside our room though. We stay a lot in our room. The other rooms might be jealous already, but this is the place where we truly feel at home.

hi cloud I was brought up in the depressions years and my parents were adament that we always eat together at the dining table in the dining room. But when I got married to a television addict we all started eating in front of the t.v. and I sort of missed those meals when we ate at a dining table in a dining room. When my son was little we did have a separate dining room and we did for awhile eat at a real table but slowlyu but surely we migrated to eating in front of the tv and not really talking at all. Now I eat with my fellow residents , four of us to a table and we do talk a bit, its sort of nice too, I like that.

Hello ms Hatley, It just about a practice maybe when you was still with your parents its like a bit old fashioned way but when you started sitting infront of the television everything will change and if its really relaxing we can't resist to do that. Having meals with some friends will bring happiness while chatting during meals. Thanks you for sharing and Have a nice day

Depends on where I am really. If I am off studying and in my rented place, I would just eat in front of my laptop where I usually watch my tv series. But when I am at home, I always eat with my family on the dinner table. Such is the tradition of my family, we always eat at the dinner table, nobody can eat in front of the tv and absolutely nobody can go missing. Failure to do so would incur the wrath of the old man. I prefer it that way though since I am not often at home (maybe 3 months out of the whole year) so its nice to chat with the parents, the family and all. All of my sibling are still studying so there is actually no excuse for not being on the dinner table on time.

Hello catalyser, That's normal now a days when living alone we can't just have a proper place to eat our meal sometimes we are more often have our meal outside than into our home either.So, when we go back to our family there we can experienced peacefully sitting in the dining table while consuming our food. Thanks for sharing and Happy myLOtting!

Hello lady, That's sounds great being comfortable anywhere and everywhere you want to consume your meal, I agree that mostly our oldies try to make us sit in the dining table during meal it was a practice from my parents also and so till now I carry it with me, though I am living so far away from them.. That's good if you feel relax about it. Thanks and Have a nice day!

I usually eat on my couch while watching the news or something like that. We have a really nice dinning room table, but it is usually crowded with things that we bring home. I also usually eat alone, so I really don't see the point in sitting at the table.
@cloud31 (5811)

Hello goldeneagle, well, yah if you are just eating alone you can actually eat everywhere you want to and especially if all family members getting busy with themselves and even make a point that you are not going to cook for yourself either.Where you feel comfortable then it will be fine. Happy myLOtting!
