Juice and water intake in infancy and later beverage intake and adiposity: could juice be a gateway drink?

ABSTRACT: To examine the tracking and significance of beverage consumption in infancy and childhood.Among 1163 children in Project Viva, we examined associations of fruit juice and water intake at 1 year (0 oz, 1-7 oz [small], 8-15 oz [medium], and ?16 oz [large]) with juice and sugar-sweetened beverage (SSB) intake and BMI z-score during early (median 3.1 years) and mid-childhood (median 7.7 years).In covariate adjusted models, juice intake at 1 year was associated with greater juice and SSB intake during early and mid-childhood and also greater adiposity. Children who drank medium and large amounts of juice at 1 year had higher BMI z-scores during both early (medium: ??=?0.16 [95% CI?=?0.01-0.32]; large: ??=?0.28 [95% CI?=?0.01-0.56]) and mid-childhood (medium: ??=?0.23 [95% CI?=?0.07-0.39]; large: ??=?0.36 [95% CI?=?0.08-0.64]). After covariate adjustment, associations between water intake at 1 year and beverage intake and adiposity later in childhood were null.Higher juice intake at 1 year was associated with higher juice intake, SSB intake, and BMI z-score during early and mid-childhood. Assessing juice intake during infancy could provide clinicians with important data regarding future unhealthy beverage habits and excess adiposity during childhood.
