2010 Dietary Guidelines Advisory Committee Systematic Reviews

Systematic Review Question

Is intake of 100% fruit juice associated with adiposity in children?

Conclusion Statement

Limited and inconsistent evidence suggests that for most children, intake of 100% fruit juice is not associated with increased adiposity, when consumed in amounts that are appropriate for age and energy needs of the child. However, intake of 100% juice has been prospectively associated with increased adiposity in children who are overweight or obese.
