  • only give 100% juice with water mixed with it. I don't know whether it is or not but I don't think it is.

  • I would never kid my children Sunny D...esp...at that age...
    they do not drink it now and they are 4 and 6...
    like she said up there 100% and I would dilute it.

  • umm, no. Sunny D is only around 10 percent juice. It should NOT be given to a 1 year old, let alone a 5 month old. Only 100 percent juice, diluted. Anything else is bad for them, and unhealthy in general. Hell juice isn't healthy if you drink too much of it. It's still high in sugar.

  • i gave my son like 3 table spoons on orange juice not sunny d with 4 or 5 ounces of water so the acid isnt strong at all he likes it because he wont drink plain water. But i try to stick with 100% juices or close to that like apple grape etc.

  • If I am not mistaken, you should not give babies anything with citrus till 9 or 10 months and even then you have to be careful.
