Don't Let Children Drink Too Much Juice, Sugar Water With Little Nutrients

Fruit juice may not be as healthy as the fruit itself and hence it makes sense to limit intake by children, according to Dr Donald Hensrud, medical director of the Mayo Clinic Healthy Living Program. 
He says young children should drink no more than 6 ounes of juice a day and older kids, just 8 ounces as concentrated sugary calories will build up fat without giving any nutrients. 
Even the 100% fruit juice is processed and refined that it is basically sugar water without a lot of nutrients. Dr. Hensrud says orange juice with pulp offers a bit more nutrients, but eating an orange and drinking a glass of water is a healthier plan. "It seems like we’re doing our children a favor by giving them fruit juice, says Dr. Hensrud. "In general, though, we need to limit all sources of juice because they're extra calories."
