  • None of my three kids liked the traditional apple juice when they were babies. They drank milk or water. WHen they were toddlers, they liked regular orange juice,though. Since the OJ has vitamin C and natural fruit sugars ,not added refined sugar or high fructose corn syrup,, I felt that they could benefit from drinking it.

  • After a year old and only as a treat. Juice, even all natural juice, is just junk food. Kids are better off eating fruit rather than drinking fruit juice.

  • Sometime over a year. I try not to keep it in the house. It's healthier for my son to drink kefir, milk, water, or fruit smoothies. When I do give him juice, it's at least 50% water. Anything more than that can rot their teeth just as fast as candy can.
