When Can Your Baby Have Fruit Juice?

When Can Your Baby Have Fruit Juice?
Health and Fitness Tip of the Day – January 24th, 2009

The American Dietetic Association says fruit juice offers no nutritional benefits to children younger than six months.
After six months, pasteurized 100 percent fruit juice (not fruit drink) is an option, as long as your baby doesn’t drink too much of it. Four to six ounces of juice a day are more than enough.

Offer juice in a small cup at mealtime—not from a bottle, covered cup or juice box, which can promote sipping juice throughout the day. Juice shouldn’t be given in a bedtime bottle.
