No: Stop the amoxil (amoxicillin). If he is on it for strep throat he may need a different antibiotic for a few days. If for something else he may be better already but vomiting may be a side effect of the medication and the best way to find out is to stop it and see if it goes away.. ...Read more

Is drinking any kind of juice bad for a child's teeth? I read that children should only be drinking milk and water, but our son likes apple juice as well. Should we stop giving him that entirely? .

Is drinking any kind of juice bad for a child's teeth? I read that children should only be drinking milk and water, but our son likes apple juice as well. Should we stop giving him that entirely? .

Austin, I: Austin,
i am not in agreement with either of my respected colleagues.
Plain and simple, prolonged repeated exposure to sugar water can be horrible for your kids teeth. Sugar water goes by the name of the obvious and not so obvious; soda, sports drinks and fruit juice. Oh wait, but maybe it's all natural 100% certified organic fruit juice. Then repeated prolonged exposure to this will still cause just as many cavities between your child's teeth. I'm going to be very clear, at no point did a juice box fall off the branch of a juice box tree. But wait again, if it is mixed 50/50 with water then bathing teeth in half as much sugar will still cause just as many cavities.
I see more kids in my upper class well educated location with this issue day after day. Before I get juice-aholics emailing incesently, all juice is not bad. In fact, juice is not bad at all. It is just in the way we consume it that can cause devastating and rampant cavities. Siping sugar water out of a sippy cup, sports drinks on the bench at a three hour baseball game, repeatedly taking a gulp every 15 minutes while watching tv 4 hours after school everyday will cause rampant cavities between your child's teeth.
Every time your child drinks anything with sugar it feeds the bacteria that we all have. This bacteria then produces acid which demineralizes the protective layer of our teeth called enamel. It takes about 15-20 minutes for our bodies saliva to naturally neutralize this acid and stop the progression of damage. But your child's repeated exposure to even low levels of sugar water starts that clock back at 15-20 more minutes till the damaging process stops. Thus, 3-4 hours of low level sugar water exposure every day causes a hugh amount of damage.
The trick is to drink it all at once and then cleanse the mouth of the acid buildup. Sugar water with meals tends not to result in this damage. When we eat we produce extra saliva, neutralizing the acid. Plus, we only eat for a limited time. In addition, I have never seen a child get cavities by eating actual apples all day. The sugar is not nearly as concentrated and the fiber literally wipes the sugar away, plus the extra neutralizing saliva.
In the end, fruit is good, fruit juice with limits is good.
Hope this is helpful,

Juice: Juice is basically sugar water and has very little nutritional value. It has been shown to contribute to both tooth decay, diarrhea, malnutrition and obesity. Eating the actual fruit loaded with fiber is a much healthier option. In 2001, the american academy of pediatrics released the following recommendations regarding fruit juice:

"-juice should not be introduced into the diet of infants before 6 months of age.

-infants should not be given juice from bottles or easily transportable covered cups that allow them to consume juice easily throughout the day. Infants should not be given juice at bedtime.

-intake of fruit juice should be limited to 4 to 6 oz/d for children 1 to 6 years old. For children 7 to 18 years old, juice intake should be limited to 8 to 12 oz or 2 servings per day.

-children should be encouraged to eat whole fruits to meet their recommended daily fruit intake."

the use and misuse of fruit juice in pediatrics

many parents (including myself) opt to not give children any juice as long as they eat a variety of fruits and vegetables. Since your grandchildren refuse milk products, their biggest nutrtional concerns are calcium and vit d - only found in a few fortified juice products anyway. There are other foods the children can eat high in these nutrients such as yogurt, cheese, fortified cereals, fortified bread, almonds, soy beans, and leafy greens such as broccoli and kale.
