Fruit juice is believed to be one healthy beverage. However, when given in excess can damage children's teeth.

The dentist said a lot of parents who would damage their child's dental health by giving too much fruit juice. Therefore, The British Dental Association is urging parents to start limiting the amount of fruit juice and smoothies for the children.

According to a survey conducted by the local government, about 25 percent of children under five regularly consumed fruit juice, while two-thirds regularly eat candy and sweets.

Unsweetened fruit juice is included in one of the menus are recommended to eat 5 times a day. But according to experts destroyed by processing fruits will actually spend more sugar than when eaten whole, this is what will damage the teeth. Therefore children should not consume more fruit juice than 150 ml.

"Popularity is increasing and fruit juice content of the fruit itself makes juices seen as a good idea. Though sugar content and high in fruit acids that can cause tooth decay," said Dr. Carter.

"It is difficult for the children to not eat sugary foods and beverages. Therefore, very important to keep an eye on what the child consumed during meals and make sure they only consume water or milk between meals," said Dr. Carter.

Dr Carter added 3 meals / day is better for the health of their teeth rather than providing a special time for snacks, for example from 7 o'clock to 10 o'clock. Because things like that that make children consume excessive sugar.

Because the structure is solid, smoothies are often given to children between meals. Though smoothies are also quite harmful for dental health as it can stick to the teeth. According to him, it is important to know the frequency with which they consume foods and sugary drinks, not the amount.

Dangers of excessive sugar consumption is not only adversely affect the health of teeth. Dr. Robert Lustig, a registered dietitian and author of the book 'Fat Chance: The Bitter Truth About Sugar' claim that excessive sugar consumption, both of fruit and artificial sweeteners, can increase the likelihood of a person becoming obese, increasing their risk of heart disease, diabetes, and heart.

"I was very surprised by the response given when picked up her baby. Babies heartbeat slowing very quickly," said Dr. Kuroda.

When the baby is hungry or sick, he would cry continuously. Therefore, Dr. Kuroda also advise the mother to identify what the cause of her tears.

"Holding may not be directly make the baby stopped crying, especially if the cause is not known. Yet cradling could prevent mothers experience stress due to the sound of crying babies," said Dr.. Kuroda.
