Doctors and nutritionists have applauded a move by food regulators that will see the health star ratings of some pure fruit juices slashed because of their significant sugar content. 

A vote by the members of the Australian and New Zealand Ministerial Forum on Food Regulation has maintained an earlier decision to significantly downgrade the star ratings of some 100% pure fruit and vegetable juices.
