The aim of this blog post is slightly different to the previous blog posts I’ve published – I want to convince you not to give in to your food related temptations because short term satisfaction (e.g. from eating a bar of chocolate) is not nearly as rewarding as long term satisfaction (e.g. living a healthy, happy life). In addition, many people just don’t know where the food they eat is made of. Not only is this detrimental to the environment, it is immensely damaging to our bodies.

You’ve probably heard that protein is the key to a satisfying meal. And when you think of the nutrient, your go-to is probably some type of meat. But a new study suggests that veggie-based proteins—specifically, beans and peas—may actually fill you up and keep you satisfied longer than animal protein. Plant-based choices are not only…
HEALTHY EATING FOR KIDS: THE JUICE PLUS+ CHILDREN’S HEALTH STUDY
Caring means sharing. Which is why we want to provide you with easy-to-understand information about healthy eating for kids.
You see we all know that a high fibre diet of fresh fruits and vegetables is healthier than fast food, but what do you do when your kids are nagging you for a pizza or burger? Or you can’t face another tantrum when junior wants yet another sweet instead of a wholemeal biscuit.
Taking the easy way out has led to bad diets nowadays, especially among children:
More than 20% of children suffer from obesity
Obese children are more likely to stay obese into adulthood
The number of obese infants and young children globally will increase to 70 million by 2025
For children in particular, healthy eating is extremely important. Apart from eating, sports is also a vital part of a healthy lifestyle:
Children need a balanced diet that includes fruit & vegetables
To fight obesity the intake of sugar and saturated facts should be limited.
Children should be physically active – at least 60 minutes each day.
Obesity is gradually becoming a large-scale problem, caused by the following trends not only among kids, but adults as well:
A trend towards decreased physical activity
Increased intake of energy-dense food that are high in fat & sugar
< 25% eat the recommended vegetables
Most children need the support to develop healthy habits
Which is why Juice PLUS+ established the Children’s Health Study to support families to adopt a healthier diet and lifestyle.
The Juice PLUS+ Children’s Health Study is a one million participant observational study on healthy eating for kids conducted around the world over several years.
WHAT DOES THE JUICE PLUS+ CHILDREN’S HEALTH STUDY WANT TO INVESTIGATE?
What we wanted to achieve with our study is to improve the overall nutrition and eating habits if children and families. Thus, we asked ourselves the following questions:
Does good nutrition inspire other healthy lifestyle choices?
What is the best time during childhood to establish good health and nutritional habits?
Is parental involvement the only key to getting children to adopt good health habits?
What we have already discovered with families that started the Children’s Health Study is that they started to look at other areas of their lifestyle, too.
They started to drink more water, they ate less sweets and they ate less fast food.
IN FACT, AFTER ONE YEAR OF JUICE PLUS+:
71% of children and teenagers were consuming less fast food and soft drinks. Adults 72%
89% were more aware of their health. Adults 90%
71% were drinking more water. Adults 75%
61% were eating more fruits and vegetables. Adults 71%
HOW CAN WE AS A FAMILY PARTICIPATE IN THE JUICE PLUS+ CHILDREN’S HEALTH STUDY?
We are hungry for more data.
