Brief Answer:
You may give them for taste

Detailed Answer:
Hi
You may give plain juices (not with glucose)for taste a few times in a day but they should not form the main part of his diet. Continue with lactogen 1 in proper dilution for 6 months of age and change to stage 2 thereafter along with complementary feeds.

Avoid juices if you feel the baby is gassy, colicky or poorly feeding anytime.

Hopefully it will be of help.
Take care
