Health Tip- Pear Warning

Health Tip
October 30, 2004

Pear Warning
Most infants start drinking fruit juice by the age of six months. That's fine for most infants and most juices, but the journal, Archives of Pediatric and Adolescent Medicine, has a warning.

A baby's digestive system isn't fully developed, and some infants have a hard time absorbing sorbitol. If these infants are given a juice with a lot of sorbitol, their metabolic rate increases, as does their level of physical activity. That's not always a good idea.

The juice with the most sorbitol is pear juice, so you might want to hold back on that for a while. White grape juice is probably the safest to start a baby on.
