Offer fresh fruit as a healthier choice
By Ann Kent
(HealthDay News) -- The American Academy of Pediatrics recently recommended that fruit juice be avoided by all children under the age of 1.
It represented the first change to the academy's recommendations on fruit juice since 2001.
The group said fresh fruit typically includes more dietary fiber and less sugar than juice.
"Fruit juice offers no nutritional benefit to children under age 1 and should not be included in their diet," a statement on the academy's website said.
