Summary:

The appropriate role of fruit juice in the toddler diet has been controversial. While fruit juice is a healthy, fat-free beverage, some toddlers drink so much juice that they may have no appetite for meals or snacks. Juice is naturally sweet and satisfies immediate hunger. While a low appetite for food is not the problem in the current case, children who are naturally quite active and find it difficult to sit through meals without becoming distracted are among those who tend to drink excess fluids, including both milk and juice. Healthcare professionals need knowledge of basic nutrition and fitness for the well child so they can provide parents with solid advice about when fruit juices should be offered to their children.

Objectives:

The goal of this continuing education program is to update healthcare professionals’ knowledge of basic nutrition and fitness for the well child. After studying the information presented here, you will be able to:
  • Differentiate between acceptable and excessive juice consumption in a toddler.
  • List possible negative consequences of excessive juice intake in toddlers.
  • Relate reasonable solutions to parents who are concerned about juice intake.
