Key Findings: Researchers at the University of Maryland’s School of Dentistry in Baltimore which analyzed data on nearly 2,300 US preschool children from several studies found no association between intake of 100% fruit juice and early childhood caries (ECC). These results are consistent with those of other studies and show that consumption of 100% fruit juice is not associated with early childhood caries.
