Is it okay to give my 2 month old Gerber apple juice?

Unless there is an issue, babies get all they need from nursing/bottles.
My daughter's pediatrician told me not to give her juice. It has too much sugar (even 100% stuff) and can pre-program them to want more in the form of soda later. It is not a healthy habit to get into.
She is now six and generally very healthy. She does get a small amount each evening, cut by at least half with water, in order to take powdered medicine. The rest of the day she has a little milk and the rest is ice water.
