We have organic apple, grape and carrot. They are available to the kids (and us). My kids are older (youngest is almost 8) so they know the limits.

We don't offer cow milk. But do have rice milk almond & oat milks. We are on a well so we have bottled water.

Most of the time for meals we have water with a lemon or lime slice. Or herb tea.

Juice is not empty calories. It does have a lot of vitamins in it.

I always think that juice is sugar, however I make a homemade juice for them, so I can control what's in it

When they first wake up, dd (age 3 & 1/2) drinks a cup of cow or soy milk. ds (2 & 1/2) has a cup of diluted calcium fortified OJ. The rest of the day they have water. If we go out to lunch or dinner they can have one of those mini juice boxes (100% Juice of course) or milk. If we are home and I think they've had enough water during the day they get a special treat of "ziz juice" for dinner. Ziz juice is half seltzer water half juice.
