  • Yeah, I asked my son pediatrician and there's something in the applesauce that helps... I believe it's the pectin in the applesauce that helps.. Apple juice doesn't have that in it..

  • LOL, apples loosen things up for me regardless of consistency. Bananas stop it up! Guess we are all a little different!

  • Quality applesauce contains fiber and fiber can bind you up, but apple juice is basically just flavored sugar water and too much sugar can give you the runs.
