Just wondering what your opinions are on canned coconut water or coconut juice?

Just wondering what your opinions are on canned coconut water or coconut juice?

Healthy but pricey: Coconut water is very trendy. In general, i believe spring water or purified non-fluoridated water is the healthiest thing to drink. Coconut water does contain potassium & other vitamins & minerals, but its greatest benefits may be enzymes & cytokinins. But there is little research thus far to support health claims. The downside is that it has sugar & is pricey. See comments for a couple of links:. ...Read more

Soda contains: Corn syrup, which is in many products and a threat to health. Please read labels and try to avoid it. Pure fruit juice does not contain corn syrup but look at the label to see if sweeteners were added. Sparking water is a great refresher also. Peace and good health. ...Read more

My baby's pediatrician said she can drink diluted juice @ 8 weeks. 10ml of fresh orange or apple diluted with 5ml water. Isn't this too early?

No but you shouldn't: In other countries fruit juices are introduced very early. There is, however, no good reason to give a baby juice. It is just sweetened water with no nutritional value. You are teaching your baby to want sugar; not a good idea. Young infants do fine with just breast milk (or formula) and water. ...Read more

Can i give little sips (30 ml/ day) of fresh tender coconut water to my 4 and a half month baby girl?

Can i give little sips (30 ml/ day) of fresh tender coconut water to my 4 and a half month baby girl?

Why ?: An infant at that age needs nothing other than breast milk to thrive. Kids at that age do not relish special tastes ( they have poor taste bud function) but any strange material can set of an allergic reaction & trigger enough vomiting/diarrhea to cause dehydration. Do so at your own (or babies)risk. ...Read more
