You should try not to give her ANY juice. She doesn't need it and yes, it could decay her teeth. Breastmilk, formula and water should be all that is necessary at this age. If you are going to give her fruit, give it in solid (or pureed) form, because this also has lots of fibre and nutrients. Juice is just liquid sugar. Sure, it has SOME nutritional qualities, but not nearly that of the actual fruit.
