Sometimes babies can be affected by the foods their mothers eat (i.E: get constipated babies if moms eat broccoli, or drink milk). ...Read more
Flavor and nutrients: Apart from the flavor you derive, you also get some micronutrients (vitamins/minerals).

Of course not: The very name should tell you this internet-hyped home remedy is silly stuff.

Too much sugar: Our bodies need a balance of sugar and fiber, with much more fiber than sugar. Since most of what is removed from fruit to make juice is the fiber, it is the opposite balance of what we need. Most whole fruit has much more fiber than sugar.

Not necessarily: I consider fruit juice a junk food for kids, but I do n't consider the sucralose as harmful.I actually use it as a therapy. Prune juice has a relatively high content and I use it for constipated infants. It usually works well to get them moving. ...Read moreSee 1 more doctor answer

Plain water: Assuming that your water is potable (consumable by humans), you don't need anything fancy, eg bottled etc. Even fruit juice isn't ideal.

This assumes heart & brain aren't irritated by caffeine. ...Read more
