    Orange juice has no sugar its just squeezed oranges. if you squeeze it yourself or buy the kind that is just squeezed oranges then it has no sugar added and its completely healthy.
    Sugar is healthy too in moderation

  2. @noodle0912
    That's natural sugar from the fruit only… that is healthy and does not have the same effect as the sugar you are thinking about. AKA Juice has no added sugar in it, the only sugar is from the fruit itself.

  3. There are some natural sugars in oranges, but there are some natural sugars in all fruits and veggies. These are healthy, but like with all sweet things, moderation is key. Too much or too little will have negative consequences. Anything that is fresh from the fields is best, but juice is second best. freezing things is where the nutrients are lost the quickest.

    still doesnt mean you can squeeze it yourself.

    sugar is healthier then artificial sweetener, its natural

  5. Avoiding temptations in the vending machines… When I was a kid, I never got money to buy food from such places.

  6. "pack an extra snak to avoid temptations at the vending machine"

    while i understand, i fail to see how that will prevent frustration.

  7. @riddick0846 Because most Diet sodas contain suger substitutes, which is worse than regular suger. Plus, diet soda alos contain some kind of chemical (Can not remember what its called.) that has been linked to an increased risk of cancer.

  9. Dat can hurt them. I've even heard on da news dat a mom got arrested 4 force feeding her child.

  10. Remember to make your children's food visually appealing. This will have them wanting to eat healthy snacks instead of snacks that aren't healthy for them.
