I can’t blame a child or even an adult for enjoying the taste of juice. It is flavorfully sweet and quenches your thirst. The challenge though is at what cost? With a rise in childhood obesity it seems we need to be as mindful about sugar intake as we are about our child’s hydration.
This can be hard for some of us to swallow, pardon the pun. Many of us grew up in a house that had juice as a part of a “nutritious” breakfast. Some of us always had a carton of juice in the refrigerator if we needed our thirst quenched; therefore our appetite for juice has been woven into our nutritional history.
