Q.

Doc''s Opinion

Hi Doc,

I give my children (3 and 1) the following to drink on a daily basis:

2l Darling Lite Mixed Berry Juice mixed with 3l Rooibos Tea - cooled.

What are your thoughts....... I think this is an excellent alternative to normal fruit juices or cordials and really not expensive at all.
R17 for a 5litres once mixed!!

This seems to be a good idea, but I cannot find any information on the contents of the Darling lite berry juice. I need information on the sweetener that is used, if any, and also if there is any preservative present in this juice. Please let me have this information.
