Q.

oros

Is oros bad for the kids because I saw an earlier post-i buy it for daycare, so they have it everyday.
I know fruit juice is better but oros is economical

Oros contains only a small amount of orange juice. It contains a preservative that may cause symptoms such as coughing and wheezing in children who are allergic to this preservative.Most children can tolerate Oros without any problems, it is only those who are allergic to this preservative who will have symptoms.
