Fruit juice is one of the many drinks that kids drink, and it is a good source of vitamin C, but it is not recommended for kids under the age of 1. The American Academy of Pediatricians say that is not meant for young kids under the age of 1 to drink fruit juices. Only 100% fresh fruit can be in their daily diets, and kids older and up to 18 can at least drink 1 cup per day.

Fruit juice has little proteins which can cause kids or babies to have little or more weight. “Parents may perceive fruit juice as healthy, but it is not a good substitute for fresh fruit and just packs in more sugar and calories, small amounts in moderation are fine for older kids, but are absolutely unnecessary for children under 1.” said Melvin B. Heyman, co-author of the policy, in a statement.

Other fruit drinks do not have the same amount of proteins and vitamins, but it can be part of a healthy diet after the age of 1. Also, when the juice is left on the children teeth or the teens teeth, it tend to leave the remaining on the teeth and it will not be good for the teeth. It is also not recommended to drink juices after you take a medication or it will get involved with the side effects.
