I Will Focus On What Meridian Health Protocol Review I Gain, Not What I Give Up I get questions all the time about conquering the fear of giving up cravings for sweet food. I remember these times as well. But then I realized I would be gaining so much if I made the space for new, exciting, and exotic foods in my life. When I started to see that I could open up to giving foods that come from the Earth, I realized that I was gaining so much. My vibration - the dominant emotion I was holding on to - rose and rose. Fruit juice is good for health, but anything too much is really dangerous. A research shows that too much consumption of juice can lead to obesity, diarrhea, cavities or discolored teeth and in some cases gastrointestinal problems too. American Academy of Pediatrics (AAP) recommends that it is good to give 100% pasteurized fruit juice instead of giving drinks. Many fruit drinks contain extra sweeteners, artificial flavor and color. It is not advisable to give it to infants under 6 months of age. Feeding juice to infants is risky and may cause stomach problems. You can give it in small quantities to kids more than 6 months. If your child is younger than 6 years, then give 4 to 6 ounces of juice daily. If he is more than 6 years, then 8 to 12 ounces is recommended. You can encourage your child to eat fruits, instead of fruit juices. The juice in which the pulp is filtered does not contain any fiber. If you allow your kids to drink it directly from bottle or container, then it may decay his teeth. It is therefore advisable to give it in a cup and not in a bottle. Older kids tend to drink too much of it if they use sippie cups. Though convenient, sippie cups can increase the risk of developing cavities. It is high in calories and hence too much fruit juice can lead to weight problems in young children. Many parents think that it is highly nutritious and they do not limit the intake. However, too much of a good thing can turn into a bad thing. The rule applies to fruit juice as well. Consuming too much of it can cause intestinal discomfort. If your child drinks too much juice than the prescribed amount, then he may suffer from chronic abdominal pain or overweight problems. Another proble is that too much of juice consumption can suppress the appetite of the child and there could be a decrease in the in-take of other nutritious food. They do not have all the essential vitamins and other nutrients. Though they do contain Vitamin C and calcium, it may not be sufficient for the growth of the child. Again, if your child drinks too much of it, then he may refuse to drink milk. Hence, he cannot get necessary calcium, vitamins etc.
