  • Mine never liked juice at that age, half water or not. My pediatrician said that by two years of age, undiluted juice was okay, but my daughter had never been a fan. She still isn't.

  • Probably about age 4 or 5. It helps to cut back on their sugar intake & saves money too.

  • I never did. They got the Gerber juices or similar. They got 1-2 cups of juice a day, if that. They got more water or milk than juice.

  • Mine never had juice, just never cared for it. They like smoothies now or oj, but never juice. Sorry, I'm no help.

  • My kids didn't drink much juice. It has to much sugar in it. I feed my kids real fruit.

  • If my kids get juice at home, I still tend to dilute it. My youngest two are 4 1/2 and my oldest is 9!

  • About 18 months for us. There are some juices I still water down for my 4-year-old and 2-year-old, though.

  • When he was around 4. However, they do say it doesn't hurt to continue to do it because its less calories and sugar.

  • I never give juice. Now they don't want it, but I guess I would dilute until age 4 or so.
