Can I have juices during meals?
Q: I like to have juices while taking my meals. Is it okay to do so? When should one have juices, before or after meals? Also, please mention the advantages and disadvantage of having juices before and after taking meals.
A:Juices are best consumed by itself and not along with your meal as it can significantly increase the calorie content of your meal without you realising it. Although most juices may be fortified with vitamin C, most are low in minerals and high in sugar, which could contribute to tooth decay. Consume fruit juices between your meals, not during your meals.
