People think that drinking juice is “better for you” than drinking sodas or any other kind of sweetened drinks. For the most part, sugar is sugar no matter where it comes from. It’s still a massive load of carbohydrate. Back when I was a practicing pediatrician, juice was almost singlehandedly the biggest contributor to childhood obesity. For some reason, many mothers think that it’s okay to allow a kid to drink juice all day. Juice is a treat for kids, not a way to hydrate them.
