Children Prefer to Eat Homegrown Foods
Homegrown fruits and vegetables are the most preferred by children and they love to eat more of it, says a study.

Researchers interviewed parents of 1,658 children aged two to five years living in rural Missouri and asked them about their family's diet, including homegrown fruits and vegetables.

The study, published in April's journal of the American Dietetic Association, found that children weren't the only ones who ate more produce if it was homegrown. Their parents did, too.

Children who ate the most fruits and vegetables were those in families that always or almost always ate homegrown produce. Those children averaged 5.2 daily servings of fruits and vegetables, reported the online edition of WebMD.

Many plants can grow in containers on a balcony or deck.
