OKbut better options: Juice Plus capsules have fruit & veggie extracts containing a variety of phytonutrients that benefit health. It's OK but it's even better to eat whole fruits & vegetables.

When can babies start on juices?

When can babies start on juices?

Why give it at all: I'm not a big supporter of juices. The kids get more nutrition from the orange wedges than they get from juice. The same goes for grape, apple etc. I'm afraid many of the adult obesity problems we see are related to a preoccupation with sweet things we train babies to want in infancy.
