What to drink with meals

Tea and coffee are out as I'm off caffeine for a bit and they contain compounds that hinder vitamin absorption

Plain water = no. Just no.

Orange juice = too sweet, and also too acidic - teeth worries

Suggestions?

If I eat out, which is daily at the moment I drink sone kind of soft drink, cola, spezi (german thing, mix of cola and fanta style lemonade, awesome), smoothie or lassi.

At home I mix apple juice with water, 50/50.

I don't drink with meals either but I tend to drink squash. Not made properly, just a wee bit to give my water some flavor

What's the problem with water?

I don't always have drinks with my meals, but will regularly drink water, peppermint tea, soya milk or diet soda throughout the day.

I don't usually have a drink with my meals, but when I do it's water, beer, or dr pepper.

I generally avoid drinking with meals. Water with mint &/or lemon added is a solid option. Tons of herbal "teas" available. Soy milk maybe?

Lots of peppermint tea drinkers here, never even thought about drinking something hot with food.
