Stop giving them juice. They won't like it, but that's the solution.

Double post...

Stop buying juice. Eliminate it from the house entirely until this habit is long broken. Offer milk w/ meals and water the rest of the day only. If they get thirsty enough... they'll drink.

I used to watch a little boy who was a 'juice addict' at 3 years old. His mother did this and w/in 2-3 weeks he loved drinking water (especially w/ ice from their ice maker on the fridge).

You need to be consistent with it. Only milk at meals and juice only once in a while. They will get used to it.

Not sure how old they are but you are the parent so you should be the one deciding how much they get. I would put out cups of water for them on a table or counter and let them have just that. It will take time and a few fits but they will learn to drink it.
