Presented at the Australian Health Promotion Association Conference 2013 in Sydney, the Sharing Family Meals poster was produced using data from the VicHealth Indicators Survey, a Victorian community wellbeing survey with a focus on the social determinants of health.

Sharing Family Meals outlines the benefits families gain from sharing a meal together, at least five times per week, and identifies those in the Victorian population most likely to do so.
