  • To young for coffee products. Maybe 15, 16, is a better age for that.

  • My 9 year old drinks coffee. She sneaks around and sipps from your mug when you're not looking!

  • They do make them caffiene free. Also, if you let your child drink soda, they what is the big deal if they drink coffee once in a while? I did growing up and so did my son. It was more milk and a bit of coffee. I don't see a problem with it, if it is on occasion.

  • they are loaded with sugar and unhealthy fats. if this is a once a month or so treat, it is fine; otherwise the child is on the road to obesity and its associated health risks

  • I started drinking coffee with my grandparents when I was probably 9 or 10.
    It was as TryFry said, mostly milk with a little coffee, and started drinking starbucks when I was 12 or 13. I started acting in films then though too so it went with the territory I guess.

  • I can't imagine my 9 yo drinking coffee anything, no matter how much sugar and milk is in it. She'd hate the taste.I'm not a fan of coffee either. She only has a Coke once a month or so. She has plenty of energy that she doesn't need caffeine and sugar.
