  • most of the time I don't. Sometimes I will add a splash of juice to her water for some flavor. But when she does get juice it is the Motts for Tots juice

  • I would rather give fruit. IF I give juice it is more like flavored water.

  • My daughter only gets it when she is constipated and she gets two ounces of juice with two ounces of water. I just don't think that much sugar is really necessary. I don't really give my 7 year old much juice either. When I do though, it is 100% juice. If it weren't for the family history of diabetes and my gestational diabetes though, I may not be so anal about it.
