From July to September, Copita Juicy Juice will encourage Hispanics to

exercise and eat well

Data from the CDC's 2005 survey also showed that the prevalence of being overweight was higher among Hispanic (16.8 percent) than African American (16.0 percent) and white (11.8 percent) children. To reduce these alarming rates, it is important to educate families on how to establish and follow good fitness and nutrition habits.

In a study published by the Archives of Pediatrics & Adolescent Medicine in June 2008, researchers found that "one hundred percent juice consumption was associated with better nutrient intake than in the non-consumption group and was not associated with weight status or the likelihood of being overweight in children 2 to 11 years of age."
