Is thick juice healthy for my baby or child?
If your child often drinks thick juice, it can cause obesity and tooth decay. Like other lightening lemonades, thick juice provides a lot of sugar, even though it says "100% pure juice with no added sugar" on the label. The sugar in those drinks usually comes from fruit juice or fruit concentrate. For example, it says "from concentrated apple juice". Concentrated apple juice may seem healthier, but it's mostly sugar. Water or (lukewarm) tea without sugar is a healthy drink for toddlers. In the table below you can see how much sugar and calories there are in a 150 ml glass. A standard sugar cube is 4 grams.
