Do your kids like tangerine juice as much as the fresh fruit, and is the juice as good for them as the fruit?

  • I don't do a ton of juice unless I add water to it. ANY type of fruit juice has way more sugar in it than a peice of fruit itself.

  • The problem with juice is it is lacking the fiber that the fruit has, plus depending on how it is processed it can loss nutrients and have added sugar.

  • Yep...I agree with both PPs. Have them eat the fruit instead of giving them juice, whenever you can. :-)
