Juice or Not??

as of 6/7/2017
 
Children can easily drink a lot of juice because juice tastes good. However, too much juice in your child’s diet can contribute to other problems, like poor nutrition, obesity, and tooth decay.

The American Accademy of Pediatrics (AAP) is advising parents to stop giving fruit juice to children in the first year of life, saying the drink is not as healthful as many parents think. The AAP has toughened its stance against juice, recommending that the drink be banned entirely from a baby's diet during the first year.

The AAP also advised restricting fruit juice to four ounces daily for 1- to 3-year olds, and six ounces a day for 4- to 6-year olds.

Parents can continue to offer age-appropriate servings of juice in addition to offering whole fruits and other beverage options like water or low-fat milk.
