Each morning, DS (just turned 3 years old) had a cup of fresh orange juice. He has this as his breakfast is iron-rich, so I hope it helps with absorption. The GP also said it's good to keep him 'regular' as he is constipation prone.
However, I'm worried that this is bad for his teeth. Is this something I should be concerned about?
both mine have fruit juice with breakfast too although I add a splash of water to a) make it less sugary and b) make the carton last longer. As long as his teeth are brushed twice a day they should be fine.
Dilute it (I always dilute any fruit juice) and look out for added ascorbic acid, which makes it even more acidic. Most cheaper brands have ascorbic acid added (innocently called vit C on some). They do rot teeth as generally saliva is mildly alkaline and teeth don't really like acid, coz it disolves calcium. BTW, iron rich can be a cause of constipation.
