May I have some more juice, please?

New recommendations for fruit juice.

The American Academy of Pediatrics (AAP) released new recommendations  on fruit juice intake in late May of 2017.  One of the most significant changes from the previous recommendations is to limit intake to less than 4 oz of juice per day for toddlers under 4 years of age. Previous recommendations still stand. These include limiting intake to 4 to 6 oz of juice per day for children ages 1 to 6 years old.  You can learn more by exploring our 5210 Families Toolkit found at psu5210.wpengine.com, where you will find some fun alternatives to juice for your family!  You may also visit the AAP website for the full report.
