Is pomegranate juice good for toddlers?
I have been reading about all the wonderful things that pomegranate juice provides for our bodies, put i wanted to make sure that it was safe for my 19 month old son before i began giving it to him.
As with all juices, in moderation (no more than 1/2 cup per day) pomegranate juice is acceptable. Please remember that all the nutritional components from pomegranate juice may be obtained from other sources. Pomegranate juice is VERY expensive.
