Hi all, I had a query and wanted to discuss it at Parentune. Is Dabur REAL mango and Orange juice safe for toddlers in moderate quantity, if diluted with water and given to babies once a day?

my pediatrician flatly refused to give my one year old daughter any sort of packaged juice. She recommended home made fresh juices, butter milk and yogurt or lassi. my daughter loves lassi, so i cheat and add a piece of fruit like a chickoo, papaya, apple, strawberry in blender while making lassi for her. she relishes it....

Andrea, I recently visited the doctor about my daughters hyper activity and she asked me to avoid packaged juice of all kinds. She advised home made juice and more of solid fruits rather than juices. Mash bananas, mangoes, microwaved apple, or even oranges and mausambi cut into bite size pieces or shred. For a one year old, you may even try specially made toddlers juices by Gerber or Heinz. However, home made is best.

Hi Andrea, even my 1 and half year old daughter takes packaged juices only she wont take fresh juice. Well i have consulted with paedia on the same, she told its not any major issues but be sure that it does not contain sugar, which Tropicana 100% doesnt contain. So i m giving her daily one pack.

Packaged juice for any age is never a good option.

Its always healthier to feed your child with natural food substances. For,one year old child,the fruit can be peeled,mashed and given as such or its juice can be strained and then given. A teaspoon full of fresh orange juice with half a teaspoon of Glucose-D helps in improving digestion in infants.

Hi Andrea. I agree with the 3 ladies above. Please refrain from giving your child any form of packaged juice, even diluted. They barely contain any fruit and way too much sugar. You may make some juice at home by cooking some peeled, chopped apples until soft, then blend them in a blender with some water. There is not need to add sugar as apples release their natural sweetness when cooked. Try it and I am sure your 1 year old will like it too :)

Hello Andrea, these juices contain added sugar and sodium, which are best avoided for children of any age :)

Hi Andrea, packaged juices do contain additives, so I would prefer not giving it to a child that young.
