  • I ALWAYS water down juice, even if it is for toddlers/babies. We haven't tried OJ though, I assumed it was too acidy??

  • i ALWAYS water down juice. kids until i think its age 4 or 5 are only supposed to be given 4 oz of juice a day (thats less than a juicebox). my dentist asked how much i gave her and i said less then 4 oz and watered down and she said i was doing very good.

  • Yup, I water it down with 1/3 water. But I don't give them OJ. Our doc said it is too acidic for little tummies.

  • I water down all the juice I give my son. Half and half. If he gets a sip of "full strength" juice he'll drink it but he puckers up his lip. The PH is very acidic and can give your child a bad diaper rash if they don't drink plenty of other liquids...
