daughter is three
she drinks from a cup with a straw
does this deliver the watered down juice straight to teeth?
is it worse than a regualr cup
she is a freak for juice!
she has autism and her diet reflects that, quick calories for extra energy she needs
sensory seeker and autism, nutruionist at autism PhD office expalined her need for quic calories..carbs, fruit juice etc converts to sugars for her energy needs, so she cravest his
i get that, i water down the juice
but is juice through a straw worse for her teeth, better or no different than having watered down juice drank with a cup (no sippy cup, just regular cup)
please save the bashing, she is not on a bottle or sippy cup etc etc etc

I think drinking from straw is worse than a regular cup but don't stress yourself out about it. My 3 year old daughter still drinks from a sippy cup sometimes. As long as you brush her teeth really good and get regular dental check ups she should be fine. If it makes you feel better have her rinse her mouth out with water when she is down with her juice.
