    Default Food dye in water so looks like juice

    Just had a random thought..
    My son is 10m and some babies he hangs out with will be having juice soon according to their mums.
    I'm so against it for my boy but what do u think about water with yellow food dye in it or something to make it look like juice? So ds doesn't feel like he is missing out if the kids drink it in front of him?
    I mean for later when he will understand that they are having a different drink and he wants it too

    I wouldn't lie and tell him it's juice I would maybe call it his yellow drink or something.

    I wouldnt worry about it. You give him water and stick to it. He wont know what he is missing, just give him his water in a coloured sippy cup perhaps that way he wont even know what colour it is!!

    He cant always have what other kids have Teach him early

    He might not even care or notice that they're having a different drink to him so I wouldn't worry about it. My DS is 2.5 years old and has never had anything but milk or plain water - he's never asked so I've never bothered. He doesn't know any different and is happy.

    I'd just try normal water. My DD is 3 and all she drinks is water and milk and has never asked for anything else. Fingers crossed he won't notice what anyone else is drinking

    I wouldn't bother. I thought about it with dd1 but she always reacted badly to particular food colours. Giving her artificial colours was the equivalent of giving her speed. She would be ultra hyper and then would turn nasty coming "down". So in my experience giving coloured water kind of defeats the purpose of not giving juice. IyKWIM

    I wouldn't bother either. My girls only ever drank water and never knew what they were missing out on.
