This really should have been reconsidered. Unless you have four sims, you can't have four chairs at the table, otherwise your sims are getting up and switching seats constantly. Also, if one family member is eating, but another isn't, that eating family member will constantly get up and take their plate to multi-task. I would honestly prefer if they just sat down and finished their food. Eating as it is in the Sims games takes an abnormally long period of time and with the sims constantly moving and going to other chairs, or other parts of the house, this extends the process unnecessarily.
When sims are eating, they should just stay put.
