What’s your drink? This choice may affect the child’s life

do you know? In the first five years after the birth of a child, the beverages you provide him may affect his lifelong taste preferences.

Many parents know-whether for children or adults, the best drink is always boiled water and pure milk.

Boiled water provides the water needed for human survival; milk provides nutrients such as calcium, vitamin D, protein, vitamin A-these are all necessary for healthy growth and development.

Nowadays, there are many kinds of beverages on the market, and some of them are sold under the name of health. Is it true or not?

Today, this article will teach you how to tear open packaging and marketing, and essentially make choices.





When your child is about 6 months old, you can start to give him a little water from a cup or straw, but at this stage, water cannot replace breast milk or formula milk.

The American Academy of Pediatrics (AAP) recommends feeding breast milk or formula milk as the only source of nutrition for children within 6 months. Even if you start adding complementary foods, please continue breastfeeding or formula feeding for at least 12 months.

When your child is 12 months old, you can gradually transition from breast milk or formula milk to whole milk, and you can continue breastfeeding if you and your child are willing.


JUCE The taste of fruit juice is relatively sweet and lack of dietary fiber. Children under 1 should not drink fruit juice. Children of other ages are usually not recommended to drink it.

But in some cases where there is no whole fruit, they can drink a small amount of 100% juice.

Children 2-3 years old should not exceed 118ml per day;

118-177ml per day for children aged 4-5;

In short, eating whole fruits is much better than drinking juice.
