Having trouble with juice and my toddler#110-03-2009, 01:22 AMMy (almost) 2-year-old loves juice. Looooooves juice. She demands it and drinks it so frequently that I think it interferes with her hunger for real food. Watering it down doesn't seem to help - she just drinks more. If it is too watery, she will refuse it altogether. Do I need to just clamp down and stop the juice all together? Or is there a solution that will satisfy both her and I?

#210-03-2009, 07:12 AMWe did end up not buying juice anymore. It was a gradual withdrawl, using some unsweetened fruit teas to help adjust. My sons like a blueberry herbal iced tea. I also didn't think the commpulsive need to consume more juice was benifiting anyone.

#310-03-2009, 01:09 PMTry getting her some all natural 100% fruit juice. It's not particularly healthy, but at least it's not unhealthy. Is she still nursing?
#410-03-2009, 02:14 PMNaomi - I'll try the teas for sure! Great idea.
Itsallthereforyou - fortunately it has only been 100% juice. But there is still lots of sugar in that. But at least nothing high fructose etc.
