My husband and 2 kids have bowel movement about 2 to 3 times everyday, usually after a full meal. What could be the problem?

In brief: Could be normal

This could be completely normal.
Some people have 2-3. If this a new pattern, there is pain in belly, loose stools, blood in stools, then I would be concerned. A large meal can cause a reflex that instigates an urge to defecate upon some people.
