Key Findings: Overall, fruit juice is nutritionally similar to whole fruit with a “trade-off” for vitamin C for fiber and total sugars and is an easy and important way to help children meet USDA Dietary recommendations. The study also mentions that 100% juice drinkers significantly consume more whole fruit and have better quality diets than non-juice drinkers.
