Is It Ok to give juice everyday?

my son's 7 months old, and he loves his apple mango juice. It's all natural no sugar added...it's organic too! He loves to drink it out of his sippy cup. It's it bad to give this juice after his afternoon nap everyday? Should I limit the amount I give him?

  • 4oz per day and dilute it with water to cut down on the sugar. It's okay, but they don't need it. But...nothing wrong with giving it..

  • My doc always said that they do not need juice that young, but if you were going to do it then they only need about 4 oz. a day. This is just what I have been told!

  • Empty calories. Drink water, eat calories.

  • I personally wouldn't give my son juice until after he is well over a year old and only every now and then....but if you are going to....I'd at least dilute it with 1/2 water like the pp said. Even juices with no sugar added have very high amounts of sugar and that's not good for them or their teeth. I would get him out of the habit now while he is still young. Maybe try flavored water with no calories, he might like it better. I read about this in a mag once but can't remember the kind they recommend.
