Take a look at this juice. You’d think it was some magic elixir that will help your baby grow strong and healthy bones.
What your toddler will be getting is an addiction to sweet and cavities. That’s because there are 4 tsp of sugar per cup of this juice, despite the “40% Less sugar” claim.

Our advice to new parents: keep your baby on water for as long as possible. She’ll be perfectly fine with it unless she gets exposed to juice. Once kids develop the taste for sweetened beverage, it is very hard to get them to go back to plain old H2O.
