Do your kids like coffee?

In moderation of course..My dd is 9 and she likes to have coffee diluted with milk. She doesnt have it often maybe only once every 2 or 3 months. One gorgeous morning she said, "Come on mom lets go on the porch swing and have a cup of coffee!"

  • My son likes to take a sip of my coffee every morning. It only has half n' half. Can't be worse than Coke..

  • My youngest loves the taste of it. "Kyle, what do you want for breakfast?" "Biscotti and a latte!" Three weeks ago, he was stung by a scorpion and was in the hospital. The venom caused a taste in his mouth that made him think that everything tasted like bubbles, so he wouldn't drink water. They needed him to be drinking on his own before they could remove the IV and discharge him, so the nurse was giving him decaf lattes one after the other. It was the only taste strong enough to mask the soapy taste from the venom.

  • I have never given it to my dd but she is very curious about it.. She is 4 and would love it if I gave her some!! I just give her hot chocolate for now. My mother gave it to us with our breakfast in the mornings before school.

  • She's had a few sips before (she's only 2.5, but she loves to taste everything adults have, so we let her take a sip now and then). I think her eyes got huge and she said "eeew" lol. If she's like me, she'll be a coffee addict by the time she's a teenager :(

  • Yes, my DD has been biting at the bit to drink coffee for a few years now. Once in a while, I will allow her to have a mocha but do not encourage it because she has enough energy and I do not want her to become like me - very dependent on my morning coffee!
