Purpose. This study investigated the associations among 100% juice consumption, nutrient intake, and measures of weight in adolescents. Design. A cross-sectional secondary analysis of data from adolescents aged 12 to 18 years (n = 3939) participating in the National Health and Nutrition Examination Survey 1999–2002 was conducted to assess nutrient and weight in categories of 100% juice consumption. Methods. Least square means and logistic regression analyses were generated, and were adjusted…

Fruit juice consumption is associated with improved nutrient adequacy in children and adolescents: the National Health and Nutrition Examination Survey (NHANES) 2003–2006
Consumption of 100 % FJ is associated with improved nutrient adequacy and can contribute to a healthy diet.
Associations between 100% Orange Juice Consumption and Dietary, Lifestyle and Anthropometric Characteristics in a Cross-Sectional Study of U.S. Children and Adolescents
The results indicate that children consuming more OJ tended to practice healthier dietary and lifestyle habits without increased prevalence or odds of obesity or overweight.
Consumption of 100% Fruit Juice is Associated with Better Nutrient Intake and Diet Quality but not with Weight Status in Children: NHANES 2007-2010
Investigation of the impact of various levels of 100% fruit juice consumption on intake of nutrients, diet quality, and weight in children using the more recent national data found it should be recommended as a component of a healthy diet.
Diet quality is positively associated with 100% fruit juice consumption in children and adults in the United States: NHANES 2003-2006
Usual intake of 100% FJ consumption exceeded MyPyramid recommendations for children 2-5 y, but was associated with better diet quality in all age groups and should be encouraged in moderation as part of a healthy diet.
Is the intake of sugar-containing beverages during adolescence related to adult weight status?
Investigating the relationship between the intake of sugar-containing beverages at the age of 13 years and adult weight status 24–30 years later found intake of SCB excluding 100 % fruit juices was positively associated with adult %total fat and %trunk fat in males, but not in females.
Impact of 100% Fruit Juice Consumption on Diet and Weight Status of Children: An Evidence-based Review
Evidence suggests that consumption of 100% fruit juice may provide beneficial nutrients without contributing to pediatric obesity in context of a healthy dietary pattern.
Consumption Frequency of Fruit Juices and Sweetened Beverages: Differences Related to Age, Gender and the Prevalence of Overweight Among Polish Adolescents
Daily consumption of sweetened beverages among young people increased the risk of being overweight by more than 60% compared to young people consuming them once a week, and the frequency of consumption was more strongly related to age and sex than to body mass.
Dietary energy density is associated with body weight status and vegetable intake in U.S. children.
In this sample, dietary ED was positively associated with body weight status in U.S. children aged 2-8 y and interventions that lower dietary ED by means of increasing fruit and vegetable intake and decreasing fat consumption may be an effective strategy for reducing childhood obesity.


Association between 100% juice consumption and nutrient intake and weight of children aged 2 to 11 years.
One hundred percent juice consumption was associated with better nutrient intake than in the nonconsumption group and was not associated with weight status or the likelihood of being overweight in children 2 to 11 years of age.
Beverage Intake Among Preschool Children and Its Effect on Weight Status
The beverage intake among preschool children who participated in the National Health and Nutrition Examination Survey 1999–2002 was evaluated and associations between types and amounts of beverages consumed and weight status in preschool-aged children were investigated.
Overweight status and eating patterns among adolescents: where do youths stand in comparison with the healthy people 2010 objectives?
Concerted public health efforts are needed to achieve the Healthy People 2010 objectives for obesity and nutrition and to reduce racial/ethnic and socioeconomic disparities.
Total beverage consumption and beverage choices among children and adolescents
Total beverage consumption and beverage choices are strongly related to age, race, and gender and BMI was only related to consumption of diet carbonated beverages and milk, and those relationships were weak.
Association between fruit and vegetable intake and change in body mass index among a large sample of children and adolescents in the United States
The results suggest that the recommendation for consumption of fruits and vegetables may be well founded, but should not be based on a beneficial effect on weight regulation.

Fruit Juice Intake Is Not Related to Children's Growth
The consistent lack of relationship between children's fruit juice intake and growth parameters in this study does not support previous recommendations to limit the intake of 100% fruit juice to <12 ounces/day and results consistently indicated no statistically significant differences in children's height, body mass index, or ponderal index related to fruit Juice intake.

This study supports the Institute of Medicine recommendations to reduce fruit juice intake as a strategy for overweight prevention in high-risk children and suggests exposure to nutritional counseling predicted reduced adiposity gain among children.
