Fruit juice intake among preschool children not associated with weight

s established by the AAP of 4-6 ounces per day as being appropriate juice consumption levels for the ages of the children studied.

The importance of 100 percent fruit juices in the diet was recently confirmed in the U.S. government's 2005 Dietary Guidelines Advisory Committee Report. This report states that with the exception of fiber, fruit juices provide several vitamins and minerals in higher amounts than do whole fruits. These nutrients include vitamin C, potassium and magnesium.

"100 percent juices, along with fruits and vegetables, also contain many phytonutrients not found in other foods or beverages," notes Taylor.

Consumed in moderation, 100 percent fruit juices provide an excellent complement to whole fruit intake and can play a vital role in increasing total fruit consumption in preschooler's diets.
