V8 Juice for a Toddler?

Posted by on Nov. 28, 2013 at 11:56 AM

So, I have discovered that my son likes V8 juice. The way I drink it is that I warm it up in a bowl and drink it like soup. Well, Elliot enjoys it that way to! I was just wondering if it was okay to give a 17 month old V8 juice. I don't think it will hurt him any.

 I don't see why not. I believe everything in moderation : )

I think that would be fine.

Absolutely. It's so much healthier than the juices actually marketed towards babies. I can't imagine my son (21 months) drinking out of a bowl nicely though. I feel like that would result in a big mess.

It might be a little salty but way better than most things kids like! Let him have it. :)

It's much healthier than many drinks, so I'd go ahead and give it to him.

Yes definitely. You could also making him fruit smoothies. Those are a big hit in my house. Just keep in mind some of the v8's are high in sodium. :)

Yeah, I know. I always get the low sodium ones because I can't take the high salt in most v8 juices either.
