  • very rarely, there is too much sugar. if he does get juice, i always make sure to buy 100% juice, and never anything with HFCS (high fructose corn syrup) in it, and i buy organic. my son is content with water :)

  • Well I give my 2 year old apple juice once in a while, but i do water it down a little. Since i use organic everything, its usually a local organic brand. And she really likes orange juice, so She can have that without being watered down because I make it homemade. Anyways ... I dont think it really matters what kind, but try and stay away from sugar drinks!

  • for my picky eater (14 mos old), it's the only way that he gets enough fruits and vegetables a day. he either gets something organic with little to low added sugar (usually carrot orange juice, since he loves oranges in about any format) or he gets v-8 frusion juice, which has about one (adult) serving of fruit and veggies per ~6 oz. i usually give him about 2 oz of juice with 2oz of water twice a day.

  • I let her drink juicy juice,
    and thats about it for the juices,
    i dont mix water with it neither,

    I just give her the darn juice, she would get bored all day if it were the same,
    so i mix it up a bit with everything, ...milk ...water...etc...

  • Nope. Just milk and water. I am trying to teach her to like raw, whole fruits and veggies.

  • My son only gets 1 glass a day (if even that) its always 100% juice and always diluted. Usually 3/4 water and 1/4 juice, sometimes 1/2 and 1/2. There is just too much sugar even in 100% juice.

  • My daughter drinks the V8 Fusion 100% juice. She LOVES it! I only allow her 4 ounces per day diluted with water. I swear it helps her stools be more solid too. As Mmandil said above it contains and full serving of fruits and veggies (adult servings).
