state question - is juice a fruit?

Has anyone else had this experience??
 
Maria,
 
At one of our quarterly meetings, I think on the new MDS 3.0 and survey issues, the presenter gave a name and email of someone from the state to ask questions.  Do you have this information?  A nearby facility is just ending their survey and the facility Dietitian was told by the Survey team Dietitian that fruit juice can not be counted at all as fruit.  I always thought if 100% juice and Vit C fortified then one serving of juice per day could count as a serving of fruit.
 
I appreciate any information you can pass on to me!
 
Sincerely,
Kathleen Garriques, MS RD
