My Fruity Faces was born from an idea that if cartoon images can help the process food industry sell more cookies, chips and ice cream why not take the same approach and use images on stickers to promote healthy eating with real nutrient-rich fruit and vegetables. Although in the beginning, the founders’ concept was just a novel idea backed by an entrepreneurial mission and passion for making a difference in the health and lives of children all over the world. Today, multiple scientific university research studies such as the Cornell University Research Study – Can Branding Improve School Lunches and the University College London Research Study: Eating For Pleasure Or Profit: The Effect Of Incentives On Children’s enjoyment of vegetables just to name a few has found concrete scientific evidence that My Fruity Faces is not only a great product with a terrific concept but its claim is backed by scientific data, stickers can, in fact, help children eat real fruit and veggies.
According, to Robert Siegel, MD, FAAP, medical director at Cincinnati Children’s Hospital Medical Center and the author of the study conducted in Cincinnati, Ohio “A Two-Tiered Cafeteria Intervention of Stickers and Small Prizes Increases Plain Milk Purchase by Over 500%” stated “It looks like we found a very promising, low-cost and effective way of improving the nutrition of elementary school children.
This type of program may be a useful component in schools trying to improve the nutrition and health of their students.” And Dr. Brian Wansick of the Cornell University study goes further to say in a release “We tend to associate mascots and characters with junk food, but they can also be used to build excitement around healthy food.”
