Our Mommy MD Guide’s reply: My son gets juice at daycare, and the only stipulations I have is that it must be 100 percent juice and the daycare teachers must mix it with equal amounts of water, so that it’s half water and half juice. My son doesn’t know the difference because he’s always drank his juice diluted. It gives the water a little flavor. He’s good with that.
