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.
