Angela said:I'm sure foreigners would be aghast at a mother giving her child something with a bit of alcohol and coffee in it, but no one thought anything of it, just as no one thought it odd that a lot of children were given mixed wine and water at meals. As I said, different cultures.
In France too, children were given mixed red wine with water during lunch. I remember drinking it at almost every meal at my grandmother's place (though it was very diluted). But people hardly ever do that anymore now, even in the countryside. Most kids drink soda with lots of sugar, fruit juice or cordial. It's so much healthier! :-/
