It's recommended that kids eat fruits and vegetables as about half of their total meal, according to the new "food plate."  If you want your kids to eat fruits and veggies, the key may be as simple as family time.

FOX's Colleen Cappon reports in today's "Housecall for Health":

New research shows eating meals as a family can help make kids healthier.  A large study from the University of Leeds in England finds even just one or two family meals per week helps children eat more fruits and vegetables - nearly two more portions a day.

Health officials say the majority of U.S. children don't consume the recommended five servings of produce per day.  Findings show sitting down together at dinner benefits the health of the whole family, not just kids.
