Despite the government's account of the new limits for arsenic, nutrition experts say the real danger of juice is the circle of life and children's teeth. Apple juice has few natural nutrients, high in calories and, in some cases, more sugar soft drinks a. It 'a child to love the sweet drinks and food moving better, and obesity contributes to the problem, say critics.

Many juices are fortified with vitamins, so they are not empty calories. But this does not appease some nutritionists.
"If it was not in good health, in the first place, the vitamins are not spent in a healthy diet," and if it causes weight gain, not a healthy choice, said Karen Ansel, a dietitian and spokeswoman in New York City 's American Dietetic Association.
The American Academy of Pediatrics, says juice can be part of a healthy diet, but its policy is simple: "Fruit juice offers no nutritional value for children younger than 6 months" and no benefit to the fruit together for older children.
Children under the age of 12 consume 28 percent of all fruit juice drinks and fruit juices, the academy says. Nationally, apple juice to orange juice is the second in popularity.

"Whole fruits are much better for you," said Dr. Frank Greer, University of Wisconsin, Madison, professor and former head of the Nutrition Committee of the American Academy of Pediatrics.
He noted that the WIC program _ the U. S. Ministry of Agriculture nutrition for women, infants and children _ has revised its rules in 2005 as a fruit juice and baby food for children from 6 months to replace. More than half of all children born in the United States are eligible for WIC, and the government "really significantly reduce the ability of mothers to make juice" of the program, Greer said.
