For a 14-week study, data was collected from 28 pairs of parents and children.

The parents were instructed to eat 42.52 grams of almonds each day and the children were encouraged to eat 14.17 grams of almonds or an equivalent amount of almond butter each day.

The findings, published in the Journal of Nutrition Research, showed that after the almond intervention, the average

'Healthy Eating Index' score for parents and children increased.

The results suggest that whole food approaches, like adding almonds to one's diet, may be an achievable way to improve overall public health.
