Sucker

Emerson is starting to eat table food and I am constantly on the look-out for stuff I think she'll like. One thing she LOVES is juice, but pediatricians and other know-it-all busybodies concerned parties will quickly tell you that juice is NOT GOOD FOR BABIES. It has SUGAR and HIGH FRUCTOSE CORN SYRUP. It will rot their teeth, cause diabetes, obesity, schizophrenia and male pattern baldness. Therefore, having been duly warned, I went on the search for juice that would not cause permanent harm to my child. I found this today:


Hey, I think, 40% less sugar. No artificial sweeteners. Good deal. I put it in the cart and go on my merry way, convinced I was super-mom. Then I get it home and check out the label thoroughly. It is fruit juice diluted with water. I paid money for watered-down juice. The Mott's people are cackling like hyenas right now.

That is hilarious! I recommend just finding an organic juice. They're 100% fruit and you can water it down yourself. ;)
