    Unless you have a dairy allergy then it wouldn't be healthy for you (but healthy for others still)?

    Ds usually has water or milk, and occasionally chocolate milk shake, barley coffee, and will try tea. He had juice first around 2 but we don't have it at home. I would give him something like that if he was sick and I was worried he was dehydrated.

    Have not read all replies but we dont have juice at home at all. Its not on our radar to buy it. Kids drink water and milk. When at a kids party they have whatever is on offer so they enjoy a softie or juice occasionally.

    I don't think milk is healthy - the negatives far outweigh the positives but unfortunately the dairy corporation is great at marketing and has us believing you must drink cows milk for strong bones - it's interesting to note the countries with the highest dairy consumption also have the highest rates of osteoporosis

    Negatives: hard to digest, inhibit iron absorption, our bodies are not designed to digest cows milk, over half the population is lactose intolerant which can cause serious health problems, it can fill up toddlers and kids and stop them from eating more solid foods

    Positives: it has calcium and some vitamins that can be found in other foods

    I'm not anti dairy but I also believe your diet is better without it

    Mainly water. Often with have some lemon or lime (a slice) in the water for flavour.

    Occasionally (if we eat out, at a party, or movie night, etc) will have lemonade or fanta.

    Milk is a treat- whether it's by itself, in tea/hot choc/babycino.

    Juice is also a treat- they will sometimes ask for some when shopping so I buy the little bottle, quarter it between bottles and top up with water.
    Sometimes I will mix it with soda water and that is their accompaniment to a movie.

    In summer we have homemade juice twice a week.

    Water mainly but they can have milk with breakfast if they want and I make DH home made fruit iced tea which DD who is 12 (boys are 10 & 4) also likes. In their lunch boxes they have fruit infused water and at parties or if we are out and about they will have poppers. I have never stopped them trying things like lemonade they just don't like them

    My children have nothing other than milk and water. I find anything else unnecessary.
