    Certainly at 10mo I sure he wouldnt notice but its certainly something to think about as they get older like 2 or 3 yo and if you are trying to steer then away from juice then it may be something to consider.

    Default Food dye in water so looks like juice

    I wouldn't bother either.

    He is too young to notice and if he does just tell him he is too little. I still tell my 2.5 year old she is too little for it! Put the water in a cool sippy cup and I'm sure he will love it

    I think lying to him, or 'tricking him' would be sending the wrong message. Stick with water, and juice can be a sometimes treat (squeeze your own or buy fresh juice). I actually don't see the harm in giving 100% juice, but it really isn't necessary so young as they are still happy with milk. I would rather give my kids a very dilute juice than food colouring also.

    I wouldn't . Food dye can cause some kids to go a bit crazy ! Why not juice some fresh carrot and add a bit to the water instead ? I have a Breville juicer and its great for hard veg like carrot. You could freeze the excess into ice cube trays and just pop one in the bottle as you go out.

    Drink bottles come in different colours and he probably wouldn't even notice.... That is a little silly if you ask me.... Just give him what you give him and he will grow up knowing that he doesn't have to have what other kids have, DD has a friend who used to get coke, DD still doesn't get it and she never has asked (4)

    Food coloring is worse than juice!
    My 27 month old DS couldn't give a rats what other kids are drinking - I honestly don't think it will be a problem unless you point it out to him!
    It's great your not giving him
    Juice - especially as a regular drink
    But don't make him think water is boring or bland by adding things to
    It!

    DS is 2 and has never had juice (on my watch) and has never noticed what other kids are drinking. If you don't give it to him he won't know what he's missing.

    Food dye affects my DD much worse than juice.

    Just because one child is doing something doesn't mean your child has to too.
