juice should not appear in a children's menu, not earlier than 12 months.Recent studies have shown that the earlier the age of the gastrointestinal tract of a baby is not yet ready to absorb such a complex product.
But then the juice will only favor one child.He fills a growing body of vitamins, minerals, organic and natural sugars - energy sources.Typically, the baby drinks it with pleasure.
But since this day opinion about the appropriateness of juice in children's menus differ, we decided to confirm or refute the most common ones.
Nectar - a useless drink.
Myth noticed on the packaging the word "nectar".You put it back on the shelf?In fact, this is also the juice and its value is not less.He simply made from such fruits, in which you need to add water or sugar syrup.For example, juice from a banana, kiwi and peach too thick, and black and red currant has high acidity.
