What does your child drink?

What do you give your child to drink during the day? My dd is 14 mths and i give her milk, juice and water. She only gets one glass of juice since it's so bad for your teeth. Can a child drink too much milk? Whenever i give her water she throws it so she doesn't really drink it. What do you do?

  • What I did was bought the flavored water then gradually watered it down so then he would drink just water.

  • I give our kids juice(watered down), milk and just good ole water. Milk has a lot of fat and sugar..soo yes, they can get too much. If her weight is within the normal range and you limit her sugary snacks it should not pose a problem. Try watering her juice down a little at a she can have more of it. good luck.

  • Mountain Valley Spring Water, Organic Milk, Honest Kids Juice Pouches very low in sugar tastes like weak kool-aid without the dyes, or high fructose corn syrup.
