This article aims to broaden the understanding of the factors that predict the frequency of meals a family takes as a unit, as well as to assess the potential role country-level variables may have in accounting for cross-national differences in the frequency of family meals. Logistic regression and logistic hierarchical modeling are employed to achieve this goal. Findings indicate that family functioning and family composition predict the frequency of family meals and that country-level values help to explain international variations. The article concludes with directions for future research. Keywords: family meals; multi-level analysis; parental investment; post-materialism
