Can veggie juice replace the need to eat vegetables?

May I ask this question?

I've just bought a new juicer and was wondering whether veggie juice can replace the need to eat vegetables?

For example, if you have a juice recipe of broccoli and celery, does it mean you don't need to eat these during meals?

I am interested in this question as my child does not eat much vegetables.

Thank you

Not entirely as you need the pulp to get the full benefit.

They're sniffy about fruit juice, and it only counts for one a day at best, so I suspect the same would be true for vegetables.

It may be better than nothing, but you'd be better liquidising it into soup/stock than juicing it if you want to get more into your child's diet.
