In our house, we do not routinely have juice. I do not own a juicing machine, and I do not feed my toddler juice. Not even all natural 100% organic local juice or oil infused "health" juice. Now let me be clear, I also do not think you are a terrible mother if you do feed your toddler juice. Please do not even begin to feel inadequate if you choose to drink juice in your house, because I know you love your children and want to do what is best for them. The American culture loves to make moms feel so guilty over what we feed out children. I would hate to come over and you are hiding the juice boxes from me as if it is whiskey for kids.
I honestly have not seen a lot of articles written on juice in young children, and what I do see, touts the great benefits of juice. Let's just talk about why I don't give my toddler juice and still be great friends.
