Abstract: Sharing meals as a family is suggested as a public health measure because of its benefits on the health of children and teenagers. Recommendations for promoting family meals mainly derive from studies in health and nutrition. However, this thesis differs in that it studies family meals using a qualitative methodology inspired by social anthropology. It indeed presents a case study on the practices and representations associated with family meals in two single-parent families in the Québec region. The combined use of direct observation, participatory photography, logbook entries and interviews has shed new light on family meals by revealing the dynamics and meaning that underlie this practice. This study has also highlighted the variability of family meals within the families themselves, their important social dimension, their close association with family relations and the impact the composition of the family unit has on them.
