What can happen to my childrens health if they don't eat ANY vegetables? I have 2 girls-- 8 years & 5 years. They refuse to EAT ANY VEGETABLES, no matter what form or how I try to hide them in certain foods. Will not drink any juice that has ve

Picky

Picky eaters can drive a parent nuts! Luckily, many studies have shown that even though your child may only eat one or two things in the course of a day, when looking at the week or even month, they have surprisingly balanced diets. Even kids that refuse veggies will receive plenty of vitamins and minerals from other sources such as fruits, grains, dairy and meat. Relax knowing that it's your job to buy and prepare nutritious food creatively and it's their jobs to eat it. As long as your child is healthy and growing properly (you can ask their doctor about their growth charts), you can take a deep breath and know they'll be OK in the long run. Here are a few tips for picky kids: -Get them involved. Plant a garden. Have them shop with you and pick out foods they want to try. Get them involved in the preparation. Kids are more likely to eat the foods over which they feel some ownership and pride. -Use peer pressure to your advantage. Invite over non-picky friends and serve foods your children might not normally try or eat. You might be surprised what they eat when their friends are doing it, too. -Use dips. Kids love to dip. Healthy dip suggestions are: cottage cheese, fruit and veggie purees, cream cheese, guacamole, yogurt and peanut butter. -Presentation is everything. Making food look pretty and fun is half the battle. Serve food in interesting dishes such as measuring cups or toy plates. Make "food art" with foods cut into interesting shapes with cookie cutters and using the plate to create a picture. -Encourage "trying" instead of "eating" a new food. Many children do not like veggies because they can taste very different to a kid than they do to an adult. As your children mature, so will their tastes. Foods they previously did not like may suddenly become "not so bad". And "trying" is much less intimidating than "eating". If you are really concerned about their vitamin intake, there's nothing wrong with using a children's chewable daily vitamin to put your mind at ease. Good luck!!

Is v8 100% vegetable juice good to drink for weight loss?

Not good or bad

Losing_weight
It's neither. It, like all other foods, contain calories. To lose weight you need to burn off more calories than you take in. It's as simple as that. No specific food, supplement, vitamin, etc. is special A calorie is a calorie and it takes 3500 to gain or lose a pound.

Dr. Patrick Tapia answered:

V8 juice healthy? Is it an alternative to vegetables or should we still be eating our veggies?

It is okay

Nutrition
A V8 is relatively healthy although it is thought that the less processed the better so more whole food approaches are thought to be even healthier. It would probably be healthier than a soda! If you are watching sodium you could try to get the low sodium version. Stay safe!

Dr. Ahmad M Hadied answered:

Is vegetable juice as good for you as whole vegetables?

Not realy

Blood
Vegetable juice can be an easy way to increase the amount of vegetables in your diet, but you shouldn't routinely use it to replace whole vegetables. While vegetable juice has plenty of vitamins and minerals, it's lower in fiber and less filling than is a serving of most whole vegetables. Enough fiber in your diet may reduce your risk of constipation, high cholesterol, high blood sugar.

Is v-8 juice a good source of vegetables if u have cancer?

Maybe not

Fruit_juice
I really enjoy the stuff myself, but it's very salty. Cancer patients may or may not have trouble getting rid of the extra sodium. Why not eat the vegetables right from your local farmer's market? Cheaper and tastier.

Freshness of fruits and vegetable juice how many hour befire they lapsed?

No rules

Fruit_juice
It is generally recommended to use as fresh (soon) as possible, as the deactivation of the most healthy nutrients -and the unpredictable interactions of a particular mix- starts very soon after prepared the juice. No fixed rule about hours is universally the truth (different factors will influence it). Drink it fresh

What vegetables juice can help me increase my daily vegetable consumption?

Color

Cancer
The best ones are the red and yellow veggies, carrots, squash etc. But don't overdo them because your skin will turn yellow from the carotene. But any and all of the veggies are good because they contain substances that help to prevent cancer, many of which are still unknown. Don't forget garlic in your diet but not as a juice. It has very benefical properties.

What vegetables can I juice to prevent stomach cancer? (Besides carrot juice)

Just about any

All fruits & vegetables likely reduce risk of stomach cancer but garlic, onions, spinach and oranges seem esp. helpful. Sweet potatoes are good too though I would cook and eat them, not juice them. See http://www.doctoroz.com/videos/stomach-cancer-prevention-diet

Vitamins, fiber

Fruit_juice
Vegetable juice is fairly healthy; just remember not to overdo it on fruits and starches, as this could be a significant source of carbohydrate calories as well.

Dr. Wendy Askew answered:

Can a breastfeeding mother do a juice cleanse? Fresh juiced fruit and vegetable juice for breakfast, lunch and dinner?

Sure.

Breastfeeding
It doesn't sound like it would have adequate calories for the woman, but should be fairly nutrient dense (watch out for too much sugar), but not harmful to the baby. Sometimes babies can be affected by the foods their mothers eat (i.e: get constipated babies if moms eat broccoli, or drink milk).
