Eat fruit, don't drink it, pediatricians say
The label on the bottle promises five servings of fruit in just one glass, but offering your child juice might not be the sweetest idea. Kids should eat their fruit, not drink it, says the American Academy of Pediatrics (AAP).
Fruit juice is popular among children of all ages. Packaged in single-serve boxes and pouches, it is a convenient drink to serve thirsty children. But parents should consider skipping it and look at the benefits of whole fruit instead.
