Family Health Study
When children are inspired by their parents to live a healthy life, they can reap the benefits of good health and nutrition for years to come. Yet often, many parents feel like they aren’t doing enough for themselves or their children to give them a healthful start.
The Family Health Study was created by Juice Plus+ to help fuel the next generation with the daily recommended fruits and vegetables children need while also establishing good health habits in their life, giving parents a successful way to guide their families into a lasting, healthier lifestyle.
Through the Juice Plus+ Family Health Study, when an adult gets started on Juice Plus+ they can sponsor a child, teen, or college student to receive Juice Plus+ at no extra cost.
The Family Health Study is rooted in nearly 20 years of research, which focuses on the lasting impact that Juice Plus+ capsules and chewables have on families and how it positively affects their health habits when taken daily. Based on three main pillars, the study highlights that:
- Good nutrition is the foundation of health, inspiring and inspires other healthy lifestyle choices.
- Childhood is the best time to establish good health and nutritional habits.
- Parental involvement is key in getting children to adopt good health habits.
The success of the Family Health Study is tracked through a series of volunteer surveys given to parents after their child’s first four to eight months of taking Juice Plus+, with new data is collected once a year afterwards.
More than 150,000 families have participated in the study since it began in 1999, with parents documenting a noticeable difference in how they and their children eat, feel and live when taking Juice Plus+.
