Fruit Juice: Good or Bad for Kids?
Lucette Talamas, Registered Dietitian with Baptist Health South Florida, affirms juice is actually not necessary as way to get fruits intake.
She explains it is better to take the whole real fruits instead of juice or pulp. The whole fruit has the fiber that juice doesn’t have.
Registered Dietitian adds the serving size recommended for children is no more than four to up to six ounces per day of juice fruit, and for teenagers no more than 8 ounces.
She affirms kids just need water to stay hydrated.
