  • Get his doctor involved in it. Grandmas tend to listen to doctors.

  • I am going to assume that your mom has primary custody of your child. If that is the case, you need to let her parent him.

  • Your mom raised you. How are your eating habits?

  • Why are you so concerned about his diet and his nutrition? Has his doctor indicated he's unhealthy, under/overweight, or something else that would be cause for concern?

  • I'm assuming since she's raising him that she's the one going to the pediatrician appointments with him. If there was a problem I think the ped would bring it up with her. There is tons of information out now about nutrition and feeding kids healthy diets, I'm sure your mom is well aware of healthy choices. I also notice in my life it's the older people that generally have a much better diet than those in their 20s/30s, so it's likely your mom has healthier food choices around than many younger parents.
    btw - juices have more sugar than most kids need on a daily basis, even v8 fusion and tropicana splash
