Impressive but surprisingly easy dishes to make
my DD[5yo] loves orange juice.how much is too much?she prob has about 2 litres a week, she drinks squash,water and milk at other times.should i be worried that its too much for her?
Personally I limit it to approx 100- 150 mls per day (and some days she doesn't have any) I also dilute it with water, one third to one half orange juice topped up with water.Afaik it isn't great for their teeth (sugar plus its acidity). I also tend to give it at main mealtimes as the vitamin c boosts the absorption of iron rich foods.
mine have a glass (150mls or so) with breakfast each morning, water the rest of the time
It does seem quite a lot. That averages what, 285ml a day (so probably about 2 large cups)?My concern would be for teeth as well as the additional calories. The sugars can also cause diarrhoea.This link seems quite sensibleI would dilute it down and try and make it gradually more watery.
thankyou i will definitely reduce her intake.she can have one glass of diluted juice per day - didnt know it could cause diarrhoea.i was thinking more of too much sugar.
