Broadcaster Press 13 August 8, 2017 www.broadcasteronline.com The Truth on Juice: Updated recommendations for children and infants Broad casteronline .com By Megan Erickson SDSU Extension Nutrition Field Specialist Let’ talk juice. Companies market juice as a healthy beverage for children and also a natural source of vitamins. Because it tastes so good, children can easily drink a lot of juice. While juice does provide some of the vitamins a healthy child needs to grow and prosper, it also adds in extra sugar and calories that have a negative effect on their overall wellbeing. According to the recent recommendations from the American Academy of Pediatrics, juice consumption should be limited in children 2 years and older, but completely eliminated for infants under the age 1. Negative Effects Although juice is advertised as healthy, that is not always the case. With all the extra sugar in fruit juices, it cannot be considered an equal, healthy alternative to fruit. Drinking too much juice can cause excess weight due to the added sugars and lack of fiber. Sugar-sweetened beverages has been linked to the rising epidemic of obesity in today’s youth. Aside from gaining unhealthy weight, too much fruit juice can negatively affect dental hygiene. Overconsumption of sugar can greatly increase the child’s risk of developing painful cavities. Current Recommendations Daily recommendations for juice vary with age. Below are the American Academy of Pediatrics recommended maximum amounts of 100% fruit juice for several age groups. •Under 1: No juice •Ages 1 to 3: up to ½ cup (4 oz) •Ages 4 to 6: up to ½ - ¾ cup (4-6 oz) •Ages 7 to 18: up to 1 cup (8 oz) Fruit juice, in moderation, is an okay choice for older children. When juices are consumed, select 100% fruit juice, without added sugars. Instead of juice, grab a whole fruit instead! Whole fruits provide fiber and other nutrients. Tips to Reduce Juice Intake Dilute the juice with water. •Most kids will not be able to tell the difference between normal juice or a half juice/half water mixture. •Pour half the juice into another container and fill the rest with water – kids are smart and may not be very happy if they see you pour water directly into their cup of juice. •It can be diluted more than half – the more water, the better. Flavor water with fruits to make it more appealing. •Sliced whole fruits like lemons, oranges, and other citrus fruits are great additions •Berries and other juicy fruits are good too In Summary When choosing what beverage to give a child or infant, follow the recommended guidelines. Sugar-sweetened beverages, like fruit juice, in moderation can have some benefits for children and adolescents older than one year of age, but giving them a whole piece of juicy fruit in its place provides a much more nourishing thirst quencher! 2x1 Broadcasteronline.c om 3x1 Broadcasteronline.c om DPS Encourages Motorists To Be Patient During Sturgis Rally 4x1 PIERRE, S.D. – More traffic is expected on South Dakota highways starting this week in anticipation of the Sturgis Motorcycle Rally and officials of the South Dakota Department of Public Safety say patience will be a key to remaining safe. The 77th Sturgis Motorcycle Rally starts Friday, Aug. 4, and runs through Sunday, Aug. 13. With more motorists driving different kinds of vehicles, especially in the Black Hills area, Col. Craig Price, superintendent of the Highway Patrol, says people need to be even more cautious than usual. “Many of those attending the rally are not used to traveling in the Black Hills so we encourage people to slow down and watch for others,” Price says. “With increased traffic, people need to share the roads, especially on some of the more narrow and winding roads found in the Black Hills. In the last five years, statistics show that most crashes in the Black Hills occur between 12 p.m. and 5 p.m. during the Sturgis Motorcycle Rally.” August is traditionally the state’s highest vehicle fatality month each year. Lee Axdahl, director of the Office of Highway Safety, says no matter how many people will attend this year’s rally, driver and rider safety remains the priority. “It is still about common sense and following the rules of the road,” Axdahl says. “We strongly encourage motorists to wear seat belts and motorcyclists to wear helmets. And keep an eye on intersections and your vehicle blind spots as bikers can seemingly come out of nowhere!” Another issue of concern this year is the extremely dry conditions in the Black Hills and other parts of western South Dakota. The public is encouraged to be careful with any open burns and devices that could spark a wildfire. Rally visitors are encouraged to visit the Office of Highway Safety’s website at http://www.southdakotarides.com/. The site includes safety tips, motorcycle laws and regulations and a virtual ride feature that gives novice riders or bikers unfamiliar with South Dakota roads a chance to study various routes and gauge the difficulty of the ride compared to their level of skill on a motorcycle. Rally attendees looking for real-time public safety information about the Sturgis Rally can also follow four Twitter sites at @ SDPublicSafety, @SDHighwayPatrol, @SouthDakotaDOT and @RallyTraffic. Motorcyclists and motorists alike are reminded of the rules for sharing the road: *** Motorcyclists should ride in singlefile lines and avoid crowding the center line or crowding motorists; *** Motorists should remember not to crowd cycles. Motorcycles have the same rights on the road as motorists; *** Motorists and cyclists should follow the recommended speed limits. Motorcyclists should be especially aware of speed limits on curves; *** It is against the law to drink and drive. Motorists and cyclists should make sure they have sober drivers; *** Motorists should remember to buckle up, it’s the law; and, *** Motorcyclists are encouraged to wear helmets. Applications Now Open For Buffer Strip Incentives PIERRE, S.D. – South Dakotans can now apply to receive riparian buffer strip property tax incentives, Gov. Dennis Daugaard announced today. To aid prospective applicants, the Daugaard Administration has rolled out a new web map to help landowners determine which waters qualify under the new riparian buffer strip program. “South Dakotans place a very high value on the water quality of our lakes and streams,” Gov. Daugaard said. “I expect many South Dakotans will choose to participate in this program to help improve water quality in our state, and this new map makes it easy to understand who qualifies.” The web map, developed by the Department of Environment and Natural Resources, allows landowners and county directors of equalization to view and download maps of eligible lakes and streams. The map can also be used to Book 64 estimate buffer strip lengths and acres. The interactive map database is located at denr.sd.gov/datagis.aspx. Under the new law, eligible riparian buffer strips are Sudoku #1 assessed at 60 percent of the land’s agricultural income value.
