Summary:

While children’s juice consumption has stopped rising in recent years, statistics show that the amount of whole fruits and vegetables consumed by toddlers and young children still does not meet recommended levels. Some toddlers, especially those with strong appetites and who are very active, may drink much more fruit juice than is recommended by children’s health experts. Fruit juice does not supply as much natural fiber, vitamins or phytochemicals as whole fruits. Because fruit juice may also displace more-healthful beverages such as milk and water, intervention may be necessary. There are numerous ways health professionals can educate parents and caregivers to help reduce and limit the amount of juice beverages consumed by young children.

Objectives:

The goal of this toddler juice continuing education program is to update healthcare professionals’ knowledge of basic nutrition for the well child, with guidelines for including juice drinks in the diet. After completing this course, the student will be able to:
  • Differentiate between acceptable and excessive juice consumption for toddlers
  • List possible negative consequences of excessive juice intake for toddlers
  • Relate reasonable solutions to parents who are concerned about juice intake
