BOCA RATON, Fla.--(BUSINESS WIRE)--Researchers now think that health and happiness, more than health and wellness are the right approach to a long, well-rounded life. For instance, a recent J. Walter Thompson trend report, “Health & Happiness: Hand in Hand,” examines the rising notion that a happier person is a healthier person—and, in turn, a healthier person is a happier person. So with products designed to help you manage your day and prepare healthy, delicious juices, drinks and meals, the Oster®, Crock-Pot®, Margaritaville® and Health o meter® brands are prepared to bring health and happiness to consumers this summer.
“Consumers are willing to do anything and everything to achieve health and happiness,” says Cheryl Punk, of Jarden Consumer Solutions. “Our brands are determined to help consumers achieve a healthy summer body and a happy state of mind. Products like these promote action and ease, allowing consumers to prepare healthy and quick juices, drinks and meals on a budget and within their busy schedules.”
The Oster® Versa® 1100 Performance Blender is great for whole food blending and smoothies; Oster® Juice & Blend 2 Go™ Juice Extractor is a juicing master, families can use it daily for great overall health for everyone in the house. In addition, Oster® Duraceramic™ products, which feature PFOA/PTFE free material, have proven healthier to use for cooking. The Margaritaville® Bali™ Frozen Concoction Maker® delivers a fun spin on “happiness,” making skinny low calorie frozen margaritas at home; and the Health o meter® Lose It® Bluetooth Scale is a fun, interactive weight management system that allows users to keep track of their weight loss goals.
