I am slightly 50/50 on this subject! I think it's inevitable that your child is going to be introduced in the REAL world! Sugar is apart of life - I just htink it is important to teach your child how to use it and when it is acceptable!
I have a strict diet when we are at home! Well not really strict - but healthy! Her day consists of different foods including yoghurt, milk, farex, brown bread, fruit, veges, cheese etc.
Unfortunately her family just seems to feel the need to give her sugary items all the time - including juice! I have just made it very clear that if they do give her juice- then it must be watered down considerably - otherwise I know her grandfather will just do it anyway - at least this way he has boundaries......
I have found that the best type to give them if you have too is the ones found in the baby section i.e. golden circle and heinz!
Good luck! Aletha
