I know when children are transitioning from bottles of milk it is easy to give them a sippy cup of juice. The problem with juice and sippy cups is that kids are constantly drinking out of them and putting their mouths on it so their teeth are always coated in sugar. Not only does juice fill kids up so they do not want to eat all their meal but it also just gives them sugar and carbohydrates. Children need to be reinforced to be eating whole fruits instead of juices. Drinking too much juice can contribute to obesity, cavities, diarrhea, and other gastrointestinal problems. If you have a hard time keeping your kids off juice try diluting it or try sweet seasonal fruits your kids just might love more! Lets look out for our children and keep them strong and healthy.
