Fruit Juice must be avoided upto the age of 1 year

Unless advised by a doctor, offering fruit juice to infants under the age of 1 year must be avoided, as it provides no nutritional benefit and may harm their health. It was previously recommended by researchers that fruit juice should not be given to infants under the age of 6 months.

Fruit juices are absolutely unnecessary for children under age 1.
