The skinny on juice drinks

Not all juice drinks are created equal. A juice drink’s label can showcase a picture of luscious fresh fruit, but the actual contents of the drink may contain a very small amount of real fruit juice. Some fruit juice drinks contain as much or even more sugar per serving than a candy bar. A juice drink loaded with sugar and empty calories is not a healthy option for kids or adults.
