Juicy Juice causes cavities?

Has your dentist ever told you NOT to give your kids Juicy Juice? I didn't realize it was full of sugar until the dentist said this.

  • Most fruit juices have sugar in them.
    Any kind of sugars or acids can wear down the enamel and cause cavities.

  • Most juices, even 100% juices have sugar in them. They kids will be fine as long as you brush their teeth. Do NOT let them sleep with a bottle or sippy cup of juice.

  • All juice is bad for their teeth...even 100% juice. Juice is just sugar water squeezed out of fruit.

  • Dateline or some show like that did a story of hidden sugars in juices supposedly 100% juice. Don't be fooled. Juicy Juice has TONS of sugar. I thought twice about buying it after that.

    fruit snacks are MUCH WORSE then any drink out there

  • All juices can cause cavities. I got the hidden sugars list from my doctors when I had GD.

    and really, there is no reason to give your kids juice if they eat a balanced diet that includes fruit. IF my ds gets it he gets it watered down(half juice half water) and we brush his teeth right after. fruit juice is not a substitute for actually eating fruit
