Guidelines Say No Juice For Kids Under One Year Old

Bayo Ajibola

A new guidelines is out and its telling parents not to give their kids under the age of one juice to drink.

 “We couldn’t really see any reason why juice was still part of the potential recommendation for 6- to 12-month-old kids,” said Dr. Steven A. Abrams, chairman of the Department of Pediatrics at the Dell Medical School at the University of Texas, and co-author of the policy statement.

 

“We recommend breastfeeding or formula in that age group, and there really isn’t any need or beneficial role for juice, so we kind of made that adjustment.”

“We primarily are supporting that kids learn how to eat fruit rather than fruit juice,” Abrams said of the new recommendations. “I think that comes across more strongly than it has before.”
