  • Do not offer fruit juice to infants less than six months of age.
  • After six months of age, you can offer limited amounts of juice each day.
  • For babies older than six months, whole fruit offers nutritional benefits more than fruit juice. Whole fruits also provide fiber and other nutrients.

Yes. Toddlers are picky eaters with small appetites, short attention spans, and changing moods. But as long as your toddler is gaining weight appropriately and isn't losing weight, don't panic: He's okay.
 
Children will eat when they are hungry. What you have to do is: offer nutrient-rich and calorie-rich foods, avoid giving him filler foods - like chips, cookies, and juice -  make mealtime fun and finally control the urge to force him to eat "just a little more".
 
One thing to be wary about, though, is when your child becomes extremely selective and refuses to eat anything but one or two foods for several weeks. This may lead to vitamin deficiencies.
