In their recent commentary,(1) Wojcicki and Heyman suggested that 100% fruit juice consumption is linked to childhood obesity and should be eliminated from the US Department of Agriculture (USDA) Food Programs. This recommendation is unsupported by the scientific literature, which has failed to show an association between overweight and obesity status and moderate consumption of 100% fruit juice in children,(2) but evidence does support that 100% fruit juice contributes significantly to nutrient intake.
