Do ponto de vista conceitual, o presente trabalho centrouse em um dos contextos onde se processa o desenvolvimento da crianca, assumindo como referencia o modelo transacional (Sameroff & Fiese
, 2000) e a perspetiva bioecologica (Bronfenbrenner & Morris, 2006).
Furthermore, routines and rituals, which have varied in timing and content across families and cultures, are potentially useful in maintaining the structure and emotional climate of the family (Fiese
, 2006; Fiese
& Everhart, 2008; Spagnola & Fiese
, B., Winter, M., Anbar, R., Howell, K., & Poltrock, S.
However, in other studies, the mother stayed near the child (Fiese
, 1990; Frahsek, Mack, Mack, Pfalz-Blezinger, & Knopf, 2010), and pretend play was conducted not on the fixed chair but in a free state on the floor (Damast, et al., 1996; Farver & Wimbarti, 1995; Tomasello, Striano, & Rochat, 1999).
Also, there is increasing evidence that frequency of shared family mealtimes is associated with positive health outcomes for children and youth, including reduced risks for eating disorders (Neumark-Sztainer, Eisenberg, Fulkerson, & Story, 2008), increased consumption of healthy food and less consumption of unhealthful food (Hammons & Fiese
, 2011), less risk for childhood obesity (Gable, Chang, & Krull, 2007) and greater family cohesion (Welsh, French, & Wall, 2011).
Most of the literature suggests that biological and social conditions are associated with child mental health problems (Masten & Gerwitz, 2006; Sameroff & Fiese
, 2005), thus it is essential to study the impact of these risk conditions for a better understanding of the issues.
Socialization among family members mainly occurs during family meals (Fiese
& Schwartz, 2008; Larson, Branscomb, & Wiley, 2006; Fiese
, Tomcho, Douglas, Joseph & Backer, 2002).

The most successful strategies for combating obesity should address concerns regarding personal health choices and also one's social environment (Fiese
, Bost, McBride, & Donovan, 2013).
Indeed, kindergarten teachers put a significant amount of time and effort into such outreach (McIntyre, Eckert, Fiese
, DiGennaro, & Wildenger, 2007; Pianta, Cox, Taylor, & Early, 1999; Rimm-Kaufman & Pianta, 1999).
