      A nice juice drink for little ones

      During the warm weather, all be it a distant memory, I tried giving Jayden a drink of cooled boiled water between bottles to keep him cool and hydrated, whilst he would drink it he didn't seem that keen and would spit a lot of it out. When I was a baby my Mum would give me baby juice to drink, when you buy it it is already diluted however she would dilute it down further for me so it was more or less like water but with a hint of flavour to it, I decided to give this a try with Jayden to see if it would encourage him to drink something between meals on hot days. My local Tesco sold Heinz Baby Juice with Spring Water in a range of flavours so I decided to give this a try, I purchased him the Apple flavour in the hope that this would encourage him to have a drink.

      Packaging
      The Heinz Baby Juice comes in a clear plastic bottle, it has a plastic label wrapped around the middle of it with a white plastic screw lid on top of it. The background of the label is made to look like sky and grass with birds in the sky, in the grass section on the front of the bottle is the name of the product "Heinz Baby Juice with Spring Water" written in white and green, towards the bottom of the label are pictures of apples with a the flavour (Apple) written just above. In one of the clouds are the words ready to drink and next to it the age that this drink is suitable for. One the back of the bottle is all the product information including facts about the drink, ingredients, nutritional information and warnings, this is all clearly set out in sections.

      The Apple Juice
      The Heinz Baby Juice looks just regular apple squash, it has a light yellowy colour to it and when you open the bottle you can smell the apple fragrance. This juice is suitable for babies from 4 months onwards, it contains no added sugar and is gluten free, this product is also suitable for vegetarians and has no artificial colours, flavours or preservatives, this juice is made with spring water and it totally natural so there is nothing that can harm your baby. I have tried the baby juice just to see how strong the flavour was and it has quite a nice flavour to it, the apple taste is natural and not artificial, the flavour is not too strong as it has been diluted with spring water, however as Jayden was quite young when he started this I did dilute it down further so the juice was more like water with a hint of apple, that way Jayden was drinking something with more flavour to it compared to plain boiled water, yet the flavour was not going to be too strong for him, I diluted the juice with boiled water that way I knew it would be safe for him to drink.

      Warnings
      The warnings on the back of the bottle of Heinz Baby Juice are mainly about your baby's dental health and state that the juice contains naturally occurring sugars so to reduce the risk of tooth decay you should
      * Not leave your baby alone with the drink
      * Serve from a cup or spoon not a dummy or a bottle
      * Protect your baby's teeth when they appear by brushing regularly after feeding
      * Once opened keep refrigerated and use within 4 days of opening
      We do not have to worry about Jayden's teeth being brushed as he has not had any come through yet, however we do not leave him along with the juice. One thing we do do is give him the juice from a bottle as he would not be able to drink it any other way, however the juice is well diluted and he only has a small amount at a time.

      Price and Availability
      Heinz Baby Juice is available from a variety of shops including supermarkets and chemists with a baby section such as Boot and Superdrug. We purchased our bottle of Heinz Baby Juice from our local Tesco and the 750ml bottle cost me £1.67.

      My Opinion
      I was a bit worried about what Jayden's response would be when he first tried the apple juice, I prepared a small amount in his bottle diluted with cooled boiled water and let him take a small amount of it, I was pleased to see that he loved it, he really seemed to enjoy the apple flavoured juice he didn't spit any out at all and happily drank it with no fuss. I was happy for Jayden to drink this juice between bottles on hot days as it contains nothing artificial and it is an ideal way of keeping him cool and hydrated, especially when he would not drink just water.

      The juice is reasonably priced for a large bottle, however one thing I found with this product was that it said you should use it within 4 days of opening, this was a 750ml bottle and there was no way Jayden was going to drink all that in 4 days, however I did keep it in the fridge all of the time and would check it before giving it to him and it was fine after 4 days, I do personally think this is a short amount of time to drink this product in especially when it is aimed at babies from 4 months old. I would definitely recommend the Heinz Baby Juice with Spring Water and would buy it for Jayden again in the future.
