Q.

100% fruit juice

My 13 month old girl now does not seem to like her formula but prefers fruit juice. I give her the 100% fruit juice occasionaly during the day, is this ideal or should i give her water as well?

You must not give her undiluted fruit juice. Always dilute the juice with water [half/half]
