Fresh Fruit Juice Great for Childrens Diets

Children and teenagers who drink fresh juice have higher intakes of key nutrients in their diets in comparison to those who do not, so says a new study.
The benefits of drinking fresh fruit juice are propounded in the 2003-2006 National Health and Nutrition Examination Survey (NHANES).
The findings highlighted children who drank fruit juice had considerably higher intakes of vitamins A and C, magnesium, potassium, folate and dietary fibre, as well as significantly lower intakes of added sugars in comparison to non-fruit juice consumers.
Moreover, the higher intake of fruit juice correlated to increased consumption of fruit and whole grains .
The overall diet quality of fresh fruit juice drinkers was better than that of non-fresh fruit juice consumers.
