The only time I have given my kids juice is if we are going on a field trip in the summer. I will pack Capri Suns because it is almost a guarantee that they will drink them and this will keep them hydrated.
I serve milk and water only but as far as juice goes, it's allowable under Food Program rules so its totally acceptable to be served. Like all things the key is moderation.
