Should we water down our juice?

Never. Why? Because bacteria in the mouth only need a small amount of sugar to produce the acids that result in tooth decay. Watering down juice gives parents the false sense of security that their child will be exposed to less sugar. But by doing so, parents increase the amount of time teeth are exposed to sugar, and it actually increases the risk of tooth decay.
