I big on herbal tea myself and if my kids want to try, they’re welcome. Herbal tea without caffeine is harmless. As a child I drank tea with milk, which is totally normal in our country, it wasn’t decaf tea and it didn’t have a harmful effect on me.
My daughter is 13yr and likes to try a sip of my coffee every now and then (I drink decaf), but so far she doesn’t like it much.
When you give your children coffee or tea with caffeine, make sure you don’t give it to them too late in the day and not too often, keep it as a special thing.
