I think the juice is good for him. I give him V8 Fusion which is 100% fruit & veggitable juice & I dilute it half & half with water. I think it helps him get vitamins in that he may be missing on the days he refuses to eat some of his veggies or fruits.

If you can continue to dilute the juice over time with more and more water until it is all water that would be best. Juice is just empty calories with extra sugar. If you can try to hold off on juice until your child is much older than do that.

i know some people who still dilute juice at 6 years old, i dilute my daughters juice most of the time but she has chronic constipation so somtimes she gets it straight. i still dilute the juice i drink if its welches or something really heavy like cranberry juice. Juice taste better but if you water it down they get more water like they need plus juice can be expensive

My daughter was 4 when I stopped diluting her juice. I did half and half right until she was probably about 3 1/2 then I went with 2/3 juice, 1/3 water. They don't need the extra sugar or acidity in juice. Plus diluting it saves some money lol
