FYI: Fruit & Children: Moderation

Posted by   + Show Post

FYI: Welch’s 100% "No Sugar Added" Grape Juice has MORE sugar (fructose) than a 12 ounce can of soda! Not to mention that grapes are one of the most pesticide-filled fruits.

Fructose is very damaging to growing children and it interferes with the formation of collagen.

Sally Fallon NOURISHING TRADITIONS: “There is as much sugar in a small glass of orange juice as there is in a candy bar – and most of it fructose, which is more harmful than the sucrose of sugar. Consumption of apple juice has been linked to failure to thrive in infants. Excessive consumption of fruit juice upsets the acid-alkaline balance of the body. Even consumption of veggie juice can cause this imbalance. Even over consumption of fruit can cause severe mineral deficiencies.”

Fruit should be consumed in moderation. The earlier you introduce fruit to children, the earlier a sweet tooth develops.

We juice our own fruits and veggies and I firmly believe that juicing, along with eating whole fruits or veggies, has tons of benefits. The juice that they are talking about in the op, is store bought juice which I can agree with. When you drink store bought juice, you are essentially drinking sugar. We don't go over board with fruit, but I do make sure that my kids have at least 4 small servings a day(along with one small cup of fresh juice).

Also.... There is a big difference between natural sugar found in fruit, than processed sugar, found in soda and candy bars.

Quoting LCWAmommy:

Also if your kids eat a whole watermelon in a day they will all have the shits yup yup!

And if they eat a lot of cheese, they'll be plugged up.
