Scripps Clinic physician discusses new pediatric guideline

Gurinder Dabhia, MD, a pediatrician at Scripps Clinic Rancho Bernardo, recently discussed on KUSI the American Academy of Pediatrics' new recommendation not to introduce fruit juice into children's diets until they turn one. The academy cited concerns about rising rates of obesity and dental problems among children for its new position.


Dr. Dabhia said infants should be breastfed or given formula to satisfy their fluid requirements during their first year.
