Healthy Starts for Families

If you have children, you know the importance of giving them a healthy start in life. We believe that healthy kids come from healthy homes, so we’ve made it our mission to help the whole family cultivate positive habits. Healthy Starts for Families is a wellness initiative designed to inspire healthy living at home and empower families to make the simple but meaningful lifestyle changes that will help them forward on their journey to better health.

We also believe that adopting a healthy lifestyle is a holistic effort, which is why we focus on four core pillars of wellness: 


Eating well means eating with balance. In addition to making sure we get enough fruits and vegetables in our diets, portion control and regular mealtimes are also key nutritional habits.


A healthy lifestyle is an active one. Whether it’s just adding a few minutes to playtime each day, or pushing yourself toward new fitness goals, finding ways to get your family moving is necessary to keep everyone healthy.


Drinking enough water is a key component of a healthy lifestyle. Replacing sugary drinks with water, eating high water content fruits and vegetables, and replenishing fluids after exercise are all key steps to living and feeling your best.


Sleep and stress management are often overlooked in the health picture. Setting healthy bedtime habits for the whole family and finding ways to cope with day-to-day stress are vital not just for mental health, but for physical health as well.


One key component of the Healthy Starts for Families initiative is the Family Health Study. With more than 1.5 million participating families and backed by 20 years of results, the Family Health Study helps you document the lasting, positive effects of the changes you and your family make. Sign up to participate and receive Juice Plus+ capsules or chewables for your child – free of charge – for up to four years as a study participant.
