Healthy Habits

100% juice is a nutritious part of a balanced diet.

Here are a few ways to incorporate healthy juices into your daily lifestyle.

Enjoy Juice in Moderation

Like with all foods and beverages, moderation is key. If you’re serving juice to children, the following juice serving sizes chart is recommended by the American Academy of Pediatrics.

Adults should refer to the nutrition facts panel to check the calories in juice, and adjust intake to align with their personal diet. Up to half of your daily recommended fruit intake can come from juice, according to the 2015 – 2020 Dietary Guidelines.

  • Toddlers ages 1 to 3
  • Children ages 4 to 6
  • Children ages 4 to 18
  • Suggested Daily Serving Size of Juice
  • Up to 4 ounces
  • 4 to 6 ounces
  • Up to 8 ounces

Eat More Fruits and Vegetables

If you are like most Americans, chances are you may not be eating enough fruits and vegetables. Research has found that drinking 100% juice can complement whole fruit intake to help Americans meet their recommended servings. Juice is also convenient, shelf-stable, inexpensive and delicious!
