    Silly question, but would there be any reason why the water flavouring wouldn't be ok for kids?

    I got the berry one off my CDC because I hate drinking water, but it's lovely so I've been drinking 3ltrs of water each day since I got it :D

    Now the kids(who hate water) want in on the act! They love it too and prefer it to their own juice :eek:

    Is there any reason why they shouldn't have it?

    Thanks

    dunno hun, but didnt want read and run!
    good question though, must be better for them than squash, or even flavoured water with all those flavouring and crap in them.
    hopefully some one knows!! xx

    I've been wondering the same thing because my 2 year old daughter wants to have some, but she wants all the cambridge food I have.

    My dentist also recommends it for anyone with braces on their teeth, because the malic acid isn't corrosive.

    Also it's colour-free, so no manic kids!

    Brilliant, thanks for the info :D

    I'm getting braces myself soon, so that's good to know! DS needs them so I said I'd get them with him(I need them too, it's as good a time as any :D ).

    Just to be really clear, there is nothing in any of the products to cause harm (apart from the laxative effects!) and lots of goodness in the Diet, but a half-portion at a time is enough for a small child, with a total of one whole portion per day. Depends on the size and age of the kids.
