  Like many parents, you may consider "natural" fruit juice a healthy
  snack, and if you have a picky eater, you may be tempted to give
  him/her lots of juice to supplement their diet. But young children
  who drink large amounts of fruit juice, apple juice in particular,
  are at risk for severe nutritional deficiencies that can interfere
  with normal growth, according to researchers at the Maimonides
  Medical Center in New York City. Drinking juice throughout the day
  will decrease a child's appetite, making eating problems even worse.
  Juices with lots of fructose and sorbitol sugars can cause diarrhea,
  bloating, and cramps when not fully digested. And kids who constantly
  guzzle juice from a bottle are susceptible to cavity-causing
  bacteria. It's best to give young children real fruits and vegetables
  or water, which is essential for a balanced diet and won't interfere
  with their appetites. If you decide to serve juice, wait until your
  child is a year old and serve it only in a cup as a beverage with a
  meal - not as a snack. Toddlers should drink no more than four to
  eight ounces of juice a day. Older kids should be limited to one or
  two cups daily, each with a meal. *By Jeffrey L. Brown, M.D.,
