Your Children’s Health is at Risk!

childrenMore than ever, our children’s health is at risk because of what kids eat – too much processed food, too much junk food, too much fast food.

In fact, our children need us now more than ever.

With the ever-increasing invasion of processed food, junk food, and fast food into our diets — combined with more sedentary lifestyles — children’s health issues are skyrocketing. Our children are now at risk of developing serious diseases such as heart disease, cancer, diabetes, and stroke at a much younger age than ever before.

Consider these facts:

They aren’t eating enough fruits and vegetables

  • 93% of children and adolescents do not consume the recommended amount of vegetables per day1

They have a weight problem

  • 1 in 3 American children and teenagers is overweight or obese2
  • Obesity rates have tripled among teens since the late ’70s3
  • 80% of children who are overweight at ages 10-15 become obese as adults4

They’re already developing serious diseases

  • 1 in 3 children born in the United States in the year 2000 is predicted to develop type 2 diabetes5
  • By age 12, an estimated 70% of children have the beginning stages of hardening of the arteries6
  • Today’s generation of children may be the first in two centuries to actually live shorter lives than their parents7

Findings from the Juice Plus+® Children’s Health Study:

60% were missing fewer days in school

66% were visiting the doctor less

71% consuming less fast food and soft drinks.
