I would also like to see unnecessary chemicals eliminated and exposing MSG when added insted of listing it as natural flavorings. All "natural flavorings" should be listed as to exactly what they are. In addition 1 cup of fruit or fruit juice is not the same thing. It takes 6-8 oranges to equal a cup of orange juice, therefore by drinking juice, the child is getting very concentrated sugar and nom fiber to prevent it's rapid absorption into the blood stream thereby contributing to Insulin resistance. Whole fresh fruit should be encouraged rather than fruit juice.
