The purpose of this research project was to perform a plate waste and nutrition study comparing Country Pure Foods’ Vegetable Fruit Blend Juices and traditional vegetables. The study was in May of 2014 at Voris and McElbright Community Learning Centers and conducted by students at the University of Akron. When we performed the project we would be looking at students choices in juice versus vegetables and selecting or not selecting. This led us to understand whether the juice or the vegetable was providing more nutrition.
