Q.

Juice

Dear Doctor,

I would like to know which is the healthiest juice on the market for a 3yr old? My daughter will only drink sparkling flavoured waters and diluted fizzy drinks.
I have seen some juices are high in sugar, others high in sodium. How do i decide which is the healthiest?

None of the synthetic fruit flavoured drinks can be recommended. Probably the best of the natural sparkling juices is Appletiser or Grapetiser.I would suggest that you direct your question to our dietician on Health24 as well.
