This web article (http://www.realage.com/health-tips/eat-at-home-to-lose-weight?eid=1010648418&memberid=32373514) seems to be suggesting that'd women when happy makes the healthiest eating choices when at home. Doing some additional things that make dinner time beautiful (soft, light , cadres, gentle music) will have a positive emotional effect too.
Unfortunately for most mums dinner is a totally stressful time of balancing the fussy food ideas of their kids and the rush of after school and early evening activities. Could a message here be make sure you have time to eat in a relaxed atmosphere as many times as possible. If this means preparing food in advance (moving the stress to another past of the day) and sometimes feeding your kids at a separate meal time so that you can meet their often very restricted needs and then get some kick back time to yourself. For some mums that's going to be dinner for one!
