Theresa Nicklas, PhD; Carol O’Neil, PhD, RD; and Victor Fulgoni, III, PhD

International Journal of Child Health and Nutrition May 2015; 4: 112-121.

Key Findings: Consumption of 100% fruit juice was associated with higher nutrient intake, better diet quality and greater consumption of whole fruit than non-fruit juice drinkers in a nationally representative sample of US children.  In addition, drinking 100% juice was not associated with body weight and adiposity.  Based on these results, 100% juice complements, rather than competes with, whole fruit consumption and does not replace milk in the diet.
