Because of rising rates of obesity and dental health issues in children, the American Academy of Pediatrics now recommends against feeding children under age one any fruit juice.
They recommend 100% fruit juice as part of a healthful diet for children over age one. It should be limited to 4 ounces daily for ages 1-3; 4-6 ounces for ages 4-6; and 8 ounces for children 7-18. Toddlers should not drink juice from sippy cups or bottles and not served juice at bedtime.
This change marks the first change since 2001 by the American Academy of Pediatrics.
