Drinking black rooibos tea only, no milk!

Is it advisable for a todler to only drink black rooibostea with no milk and no other liqueds all day?

This is not at all advisable. There is insufficient nutrition in rooibos alone. This little toddler [age not given] must have milk in his /her diet every day.The recommended amount of milk is 700ml per day. Other fluids such as water and dilute fruit juice as well.
