This article suggests that many parents are unaware they could be ruining their children’s teeth by giving them too many fruit juices. It suggests that 25% of toddlers regularly consume fruit juice with many parents using it as a portion of the child’s five-a-day fruit and veg. Fruit juices contain much more sugar than if the fruit itself were consumed as crushing the fruit for juice releases more sugar. As a result it is recommended that children should have no more than a 150ml serving, that’s a very small cup of juice and that parents should instead give children only water of milk to drink between meals, particularly at a young age. I find it interesting that people are not aware of the sugar content of fruit juices. Whilst I have given my daughter a sip of juice to taste, I would only consider giving water as a main drink.
