BBC NEWS | Health | Tea 'healthier' drink than water

BBC NEWS | Health | Tea 'healthier' drink than water

Oliver only drinks water or milk. But recently my Mum mentioned to Hayley that I was brought up on lots of tea. I'm not sure from what age, but I certainly don't remember a time I didn't drink it and I still drink huge amounts of it every day.

So yesterday we got to discussing whether we should let Oliver drink any tea yet. He sees us drinking it, says "teeeeeeaaaaaaa", and occasionally is permitted a sip. But I had assumed it was not a good idea to start him drinking it. Although we did wonder whether de-caff tea was any better.

This article has swung me back towards thinking maybe he could have some from time to time.

What about stains on his teeth! If he wants nice white teeth like mummy he'd better not drink too much tea. Otherwise he'll be spending all his money when he is older on teeth cleaning products :-)

And what if he drinks so much tea that he turns orange?? That's one myth my Gran used to tell me to stop me drinking it.

He'll look like Dale Winton or Judith Chalmers, you won't be happy....
