A few months ago Capri Sun had this issue too. We cannot trust anything anymore. But honestly. These pre made drinks are full of sugar anyways, but still...

Gentle parenting is about guiding instead of controlling,
connecting instead of punishing,
and encouraging instead of demanding.
It's about listening, understanding, responding and communicating.

I know. I feel the same. Products have gotten cheaper and cheaper to make which means more and more chemicals yet they are more and more expensive to buy. It's so nasty. We should not be be scared to buy things for our kids! Gah! Makes me so mad.

The sugar doesn't bother me so much but the mold does.

Same here, IMO ANY type of juice is just sugar and not needed. It just teaches them to have a sweet tooth and be picky. I also don't like it when I see lil babys drinking CHOCOLATE milk. Really? They just can't have good ole fashion milk? Too much sugar! Too much crap food. Can you believe I have to get a doctors note just so daycare won't feed my daughter juice! Outrageous! And we wonder why there are so many obese kids out there.

You need a Dr's note for your kids to not drink juice?! That is INSANE! You would think that should be YOUR choice!

I let Drake drink chocolate milk on occasion.

Gary wont drink juice. my Mother in law bought him some juice for her house and he wants nothing to do with it. He gets chocolate milk sometimes which I just tried like last month. But he is definitely a milk and water kid. But its much cheaper to give him water anyway haha.

Drake will not drink water at all. Like at all. So when he does have juice which is not that often I will water it down. I know not AS good but at least he gets some.

Callen went through a phase of not drinking water but now he loves it. Drake might like it later Jess! Callen loves orange juice and lemonade but he will ask for water over everything so I don't think letting him have juice occasionally hurts him or teaches him any bad habits.

Are you kidding me???!?!!! OMG that is just outrageous. And infuriating! Who on earth are they to tell you that your child needs juice and a dr has to say what she can and cant have????

Thankfully Nicholas loves water. Absolutely loves it and asks for it. He drinks juice very rarely, usually orange juice. Or the organic white grape juice. But again, its rare.

However he HAS drank my soda... I have a really bad addiction to tap soda and hes grabbed it and sipped it and is all "mmmm" and now wants it when he sees it. Guess its a good excuse for me to quit lol. (but its not like he drinks it, just a sip here and there)
