In brief: Never and Why?

Why should a child ever drink coffee unless totally decaffeinated.
It has no strong nutrition al value. But in moderation, for no scientific reason, decaff over 2.

In brief: Not instead of milk

Children are not getting enough calcium and vitamind, found mostly in milk.
If they are drinking 2 or 3 glasses a day, they can have coffee sometimes. Best after their growth spurts.
