When Can My Baby Start Drinking Juice?

t's best to wait until after babies reach 6 months of age before
offering juice. Even then, many pediatricians recommend against giving
babies juice often, since it adds extra calories without the balanced
nutrition found in formula and breast milk. Drinking too much juice also
may contribute to excess weight and tooth decay, or cause diarrhea in
infants and toddlers.

When giving your baby juice, follow these tips:


  • Serve only 100% fruit juice, not juice drinks or powdered drink mixes (which are sweetened).
  • Limit the quantity of juice to no more than 4 fl. oz. (60-120 ml.) per day.
  • Offer juice in a cup, not in a bottle.
