Jonathan McGavock, an assistant professor at the University of Manitoba and lead researcher, said "Engaging older youth in delivering health messages to younger peers is an effective method for preventing weight gain, improving knowledge of healthy living and increasing self-esteem. Research on the effects of Juice Plus+ through the Juice Plus+ Children's Health Study supports this finding by showing that 67% of kids whose diets were enriched by Juice Plus+ during a 3-year study reflected improved self-esteem. This study also shows that 76% of kids who used Juice Plus+ were more physically active than they had been previously, not counting any extracurricular activities (participation in which also increased).

It makes perfect sense that a child's self-esteem and willingness to change would be the most influenced by other children, because they are a part of the same social ecosystem. When it comes to encouraging healthy habits, older children instinctively know how to reach their younger peers, because they believe in the same things and speak the same language. "The effects of this peer mentoring model of healthy living promotion is particularly effective for overweight children," McGavock stated.
