Katie Price has been criticised for seemingly giving her baby daughter fruit juice

Katie price has found herself at the centre of social media controversy again – this time involving her baby daughter’s teeth.

The mother of five has upset fans by seemingly giving her 20-month-old daughter fruit juice to drink.

In a photograph posted to the star’s Instagram account, Bunny is seen with her dad, Kieran Hayler, drinking what appears to be fruit juice from a baby’s bottle.

My little beaut ❤️❤️❤️❤️

Unhealthy choice

Fans were quick to criticise Katie for allegedly giving her daughter a sugary drink.

One commenter said: ‘If that is juice…in a baby bottle @officialkatieprice…you will rot her teeth #basic’.

Another outraged fan said: ‘Please tell me that is not juice in a bottle! Really?!’

Never one to take criticism lying down, Katie soon hit back to fans.

She commented on the picture: ‘My kids are very happy and healthy and I’m sure I know what I’m doing after having 5 kids’.

BDA guidelines

Although fruit juices may seem like a healthy option for children, the British Dental Association recommends that parents be aware of ‘hidden sugars’.

‘Pure fruit juices can be a healthy choice, but the natural sugars these contain can still damage teeth, so fruit juice should be consumed with a meal and only one glass (150ml) a day’, the Association says.

‘Sugars in whole pieces of fruit are less likely to cause tooth decay because they are combined with fibre.’
