Kids and Tea

Is there a thing on tea like there is with juice? When can a child drink tea? We have wild berry flavored tea and it tastes just like juice but with no sugar and no calories. And its decaf. Do you let your kids drink tea?

  • Ok thats a sheww! I thought I was doing something wrong! He gets his limit of juice the first part of day of 4 oz. I triple dilute his juice, but he is constantly drinking juice, water, milk and wanted to give him more options.

  • My kids have had iced tea since they were old enough to drink out of a glass. It is the 'house wine' of the south and consumed in great quantities by the masses.

  • Daddy is a coffee drinker and I'm with the tea. And since obviously coffee is a no no we do tea. Is decaf coffee ok? I never thought about that one. Tea that has caffine in it has more than coffee FYI.

  • With everything having loads of sugar, calories and caffenine in them I feel limited. I also give my son koolaid but instead of putting a cup of sugar in I put 1/4 cup. It gets water down anyways so the sour taste isn't that bad.

  • My son drinks decaf iced tea almost every day...his Dr. says its fine...he loves to make sun tea in the summer. It's much better for them than all those sugar drinks...not that my son doesnt drink them because he does just in moderation.
