Thanks for the question .
I would be pleased to answer your question .

I would like to inform you that the complexion of the child can change over a period of time. She is too young for you to perform any procedures like chemical peels .

I would suggest you to apply a good sunscreen every day before taking her out in the sun .

Thanks and regards

Thanks for the query posted .

There is nothing in scientific literature about oral intake of fruit juices that would help lightening the skin .

Application of homemade stuff can include application of milk ( lactic acid ) .

However , I would not suggest anything being an Allopathic Doctor .

I can suggest you to apply a sunscreen daily and I can also mention to you that the skin color will change over a period of time.

Thanks and take care
