  • yes, and i have. when i take my children to the pool i always pack 2 and i have 3 daughters. my 4 year old gets her own and the 2 and 1 year old (16 months) share. it's not a daily thing so i'm not concerned about it.

  • There's worse things out there... like everything... moderation is key

  • No, I still don't give my daughter juice and she's 4...I just don't think it's necessary until she's older, she drinks milk and water, nothing else

  • My dd got her hands on my 11 y/os and she always wants one. i give in once in a while when i need to go to the store for her juice.

  • Sure, I wouldn't give it to them everyday or let them have more than one... but no harm done :) I grew up on those things during the summer.

  • If it was that or nothing and they were thirsty, yes.

  • Sure. I wouldn't give him/her one every day. They have some now that are 100% juice, too.

  • yes

  • No. But that's because he's two now and I STILL don't trust him not to squeeze them. That's how he broke our last TV along with the DVD player. So now the game TV is the main TV. You ruin our things, you lose yours.
