ABSTRACT
The article comments on the paper, "Eating in larger group increases food consumption," by J.C. Lumeng and K.H. Hillman. According to the author, he does not wish to encourage solitary eating, which is a risk factor for the later development of eating disorders. The author believes there may be scope for schools to change the seating arrangements in their diners by substituting smaller for bigger tables.
