Ribena is labelled as not being suitable for children under three. Why
Babies and toddlers under 36 months have special nutritional
requirements. Drinks that are specially designed and marketed for them
have to reflect these requirements and the food regulations which
govern these products. Ribena is not specially designed and marketed
as a drink for babies and toddlers. The on-pack directions for use
therefore include the statement:
* This drink is not suitable for babies and toddlers under 36
For babies below the age of 12 months we, together with health
professionals, suggest that they should only be given water that has
been boiled and then cooled, or specially formulated baby drinks.
As a responsible manufacturer, we recommend that Ribena juice drinks
are not suitable for toddlers under 36 months. This helps prevent
toddlers 'filling-up' on juice drinks and then failing to eat their
meals. Balanced nutrition is very important at this time to maintain
their growth and development.
Seems clear enough to me.
