Key Findings: This small study conducted in Egypt supports other research which shows drinking 100% juice is not associated with early childhood cavities in preschool children and, in fact, is associated with lower rates of caries in children. It also supports research showing that children who drink juice have higher Healthy Eating Index scores than children who do not drink juice.
