  • Suggestions for Beverages Kids can/will drink?

    Hi,

    I'm hoping to start eating Primal very soon. Currently my kids mainly drink skim or lowfat milk (chocolate 10% of the year) or water. I'm starting to learn about dairy's negative affects but they didn't like almond or rice milk when they tried it unless it was chocolate (too much sugar) and even then they didn't really care for it very much. They definitely have a preference for organic milk (kroger brand) over the standard. After doing my research it appears I should mostly eliminate milk and go with another source. Any suggestions for kids? I should mention they also eat yogurt low in sugar (not with fruit on the bottom) Chiobani for kids and this is not organic. Sometimes stoneyfield. Should I eliminate these as well? This is a daily breakfast meal most days. Thank you.

        Grape Kombuccha. Stuff is really great. I made a batch last weekend. I live in Atlanta also, if you are interested and need a SCOBY let me know. If you don't know what Kombuccha is, just Google it..... Oh yeah, water is great too.....

          Water. If they won't drink it they aren't thirsty.

              Not totally primal but way better than what most kids drink. My kids love about1/4 cup fresh apple or grape juice and topped up with club soda. They also like lemon juice with a tiny bit of pure maple syrup

                  There is absolutely nothing wrong with milk.

                    Water. Tea (not Southern sweet tea, but plain iced tea.) On RARE occasions, juice without added sugar. Poor man's lemonade (glass of water, add several squeezes of lemon.)
                    Life is not a journey to the grave with the intention of arriving safely in a pretty and well preserved body, but rather to skid in broadside, thoroughly used up, totally worn out, steak in one hand, chocolate in the other, yelling "Holy F***, What a Ride!"

                        if they have to drink milk make it full fat, raw if you can get it.
                        Otherwise nothing wrong with plain water.

                          Remember, kids do have different nutritional needs then adults. Milk is a great source of calcium for growing bodies.

                            I've been lurking on this board for months, but I had to register once I saw this video. It has the first documented images of jimhenson in his natural habitat. The whole thing is worth watching, but the first clear shot is at the 1:30 mark.
