Like most parents, you probably ask yourself, "How juice should my kids drink every day?" Whole fruits and vegetables are the best choice for healthy mouth and body, but use the following tips when choosing to serve fruit juices to protect your children's teeth.
Tips to protect your child's teeth from juice
Dilute it half and half with water, and serve no more than 4 to 6 ounces a day.
Serve juice with meals and snacks to cut down on tooth enamel wear and tear.
Swap the sippy for a cup with straw, instead of funneling fluid to pool in the mouth, a straw sends them on a quicker path to being swallowed, detouring past the teeth protecting them.
