As a child (under 21) did your parents give you wine or alcohol at home with meals?

It's legal in some states, and not in others.

But regardless of the legality of doing, did your parents ever provide you with wine during meals?

If they did, do you think it made you appreciate food and/or alcohol more as an adult?

We often hear the oft-repeated refrain that parents aren't cooking enough or making enough wholesome meals at home for their children.

I just wonder if parents were in the habit of pairing a wine with whatever they happened to be plating that night if that wouldn't make the parents think harder about what to serve -- instead of just mindlessly popping open a blue box and boiling some water ... which is not say a good Chardonnay doesn't go well with Mac 'N Cheese ...

Would drinking be a "gateway habit" to better eating?
