“ Brand: Heinz / Product Type: Baby Juice „
When we had that week of nice weather a few weeks ago my mom wanted to find something for Alfie to drink so he didnt become dehydrated. Even though he is under 4 months old the doctor recommened that my mom bought and gave him this just to make sure he had enough to drink and didnt get to hot. I was too damn hot in that weather though to be honest! If you are thinking of giving it to a baby under 4 months though get a doctors opinion first because you never know - better safe than sorry I reckon.
A 750ml bottle of this juice will set you back around £1.70 from places like Tesco & Asda. Now that sounds like a really good deal but believe me it is not! Your only supposed to keep this for 4 days anyway even if you do refrigerate it so it doesnt last very long at all. This juice comes ready diluted so you dont need to do anything to it - although I think my mom did dilute it just a bit as it was far to sweet.
Nutritional Information: (Per 100ml)
Ingredients: Apple Juice (94%), Morello Cherry Juice (6%), Vitamin C (Minimum 15mg/100ml).
I think the sugar content in this juice is quite alarming especially as it is designed for a baby if you are going to give your baby this to drink I recommend doing so only once in a blue moon. That value is terrible.
My mom gave Alfie about 3 bottles of this over the one very summy day and to be fair he did really enjoy it and it made sure he was hydrated all day even though it was so hot. So really it did live up to the promises that Heinz made however the sugar content is so alarming Im glad what happened next did actually happen. This went off in one day. So much so that when my mom went to use it the next day the top of the juice was covered in furry, green mould which turned my stomach in all honesty. We stored it in the fridge like the bottle said to do and it still went off within 24hours which means that this is awful value for money as you get 1 days worth of juice out of the bottle.
I dont think my mom will buy this again for Alfie as the cons outweigh the pros in this case and it really isnt worth the money - although they make out like you getting a brilliant deal, you arent! Too sweet and it goes off within a day so I dont want to give it one star.
Thanks For Reading

This is my granddaughters favourite juice in the Heinz range and one that I feel comfortable giving her to drink as it's sugar free, contains no nasty additives and is enriched with Vitamin C.
I've had a sip myself and can't say I like the fruity flavour very much but that says more about the state I've allowed my tastebuds to get into over the years than the juice, I'm not used to pure unadulterated food and drinks now and miss the lack of sugar!
My granddaughter however squeals with delight whenever she sees me or her mum get this bottle out of the fridge, she runs to the cupboard where her cup is kept and jumps up and down with excitement. She isn't allowed to drink it all the time and certainly not every day because water is best for rehydrating babies but it makes a lovely treat for her.
We dilute this juice with an equal amount of water so as not to allow her to become too used to the sweetness of the drink, this may not be necessary now she's 20 months old but as the drink contains natural sugars it's not the best for her budding teeth. Also, never give it your baby out of a bottle as the sucking motion means there will constantly be juice around your baby's teeth which isn't good as tooth decay can begin at an early age.
I think this is a great thirst quencher for my granddaughter. She loves the fruity flavour and it's a nice treat for her. When she was recovering from an ear infection last year she drank it a lot and it became perfect for hiding her medicine in when she began to refuse it from a spoon or syringe. This was more suitable for her during her brief illness as she wasn't well enough to eat or even to drink milk so by giving her this we were at least reassured that she was getting some calories into her body.
This Apple and Cherry Pure Juice is suitable from four months but my granddaughter was much older when she first drank it, probably around eight months old. Her mum will continue to give her this for as long as possible as the longer she keeps away from sugary cordial the better.
It costs around £1.59 for a 750ml bottle which lasts my granddaughter around a week, if your baby drinks it more regularly then it will work out expensive but if you dilute the drink down as much as possible it will be so much better for your baby's health and your purse!
Well i was never advised to give my twin girls baby juice and to be honest never thought i would. This juice says suitable from around 4 months however i never used it until 6 months old only really due to personal preference. I didnt want them getting used to the sweet taste of it and wanted them to drink water like a lot of children wont these days.
It was however on offer one time when i was shopping so i decided i would get some for them to try as a treat. I paid around £1.80 for this which i personally think its quite expensive to say you can buy pure apple juice and just water it down which is probably far better for them anyway.
I tried it first and was actually really shocked by how sweet it tasted to say it was for babies. So i decided to water it down even though it says ready to drink. They did love it however it isnt great for their teeth and especially not in a bottle so i had to introduce a cup.
I refuse to spend the money on it now, when i read the back it only lasts 3 days and has to be kept in the refrigerator so i just buy fresh apple or orange juice and dilute which is far better for them.
I wouldnt really recommend.
