EMERYVILLE, Calif., March 7, 2013 /PRNewswire/ --Jamba Juice® announced today
its participation in a breakfast challenge designed to increase the number of
students who consume breakfast on a daily basis. From March 4 through March
22, students at both Pasadena High School and Marshall Fundamental School in
the Pasadena Unified School District (PUSD) will compete against each other to
see which school can drive the highest percentage of students to eat breakfast
at school.

GENYOUth Foundation, a nonprofit organization dedicated to nurturing child
health and wellness through improved nutrition and physical activity is
supporting Jamba in the event by providing a turnkey physical activity
solution as part of Jamba's "Team Up For a Healthy America" campaign, which
encourages kids to adopt better dietary and physical activity habits and
provides athletic equipment to schools across the nation.

PUSD will host Jamba and GENYOUth officials during a post-launch event on
Thursday, March 7^th at Pasadena High School, to celebrate this unique
partnership of students, service providers and businesses working together to
make a difference in the health of our nation's youth. The promotion of
consuming a healthy breakfast also aligns with the district's wellness policy
and the acknowledgement that health and academic success are interrelated.

The participating PUSD high school that generates the highest percentage of
participation in the Breakfast Challenge will be awarded a GENYOUth Physical
Activity Ring, which is an innovative, portable device that encourages kids of
all levels of athletic ability to increase their physical activity. Pairing
the activity ring with the breakfast challenge will help to address both the
dietary and physical activity needs of our nation's youth and encourage better
overall fitness.

"We are pleased to support the PUSD's efforts in making sure kids are starting
their day with a healthy breakfast," said Jamba chairman, president and CEO
James D. White. "Our JambaGO™ smoothie machines, which make healthy breakfast
options more readily available for students, and our 'Team Up For a Healthy
America' program, which educates them about health and wellness in a fun way,
are the perfect solution to driving incremental participation in school
breakfasts. We are also thrilled with the support from GENYOUth, as it sets an
example of how organizations like ours can work together to inspire and
empower kids to live healthier, more active lives."
