In brief: Juices not needed

Juices are the equivalent of giving a baby a coke.
The sweetness factor contributes to water refusal.If u want baby to have the benefits of an apple, give apple sauce;oranges, peaches, pears, grapes etc. All benefit the child more when given as a natural food, not a refined extracted juice.

It can promote cavity forming bacteria to live in the mouth.
These bad guys live at the base of the bacteria pyramid and are hard to get rid of.
