Family Meals Matter: Serve fruits and veggies, promote better health

Did you know only 10 percent of American adults and children eat the recommended servings of fruits and vegetables each day? This means many families are missing out on the health benefits that fruits and vegetables provide, such as a lowered risk for heart disease and some types of cancer. By serving family meals that showcase a variety of ingredients from all five food groups, you will help your family meet their daily recommended servings and encourage lifelong healthy eating patterns.
