A new study shows a father's schedule can affect the food habits of the entire family.

Researchers at Texas A&M University surveyed more than 300 families about their dining habits.

They found fathers who eat a lot of fast food on their own also often take their children out for fast food.

The researchers say fathers have a large influence because meals often revolve around their work schedule.
