Fruit juice can’t be harmful to teeth

Fruit juice can’t be harmful to teeth
The sugars found naturally in whole fruit and vegetables don't cause tooth decay.

But, when the juice is extracted from the fruit, or vegetable, the natural sugar is released.
Once released, these sugars can damage teeth, especially if fruit juice is drunk frequently. But fruit juice is still a healthy choice.

One glass (150ml) counts as one of the five fruit and veg portions we should all be aiming for each day.

To help keep teeth healthy, it's best to have fruit juice at mealtimes, particularly for children. Milk or water are good choices for children to drink between meals.
