OK, This Just Cracked Me Up...

So I get all these catalogs. I was paging through one of them today, a company that has toys and books and other touchy-feely, almost new-agey, sorts of stuff in it.
I came across an entry for an herbal tea blended for kids.
Now, does anything strike you as wrong with the following description?

"The best way I've found to add healthful herbs to a child's diet? Tea parties! Our pick for the perfect children's tea is made by a master herbalist with a Masters degree in Health Promotion. As a mother, herself, she put a lot of work into creating an herbal infusion that was not only very healthful, but super tasty too. Seven certified organic ingredients (hibiscus, lemongrass, spearmint, alfalfa, roses, rose hips, and orange peels) are combined in this fruity-tasting, organic herbal tea. Each ingredient was specifically chosen for its health-enhancing properties as well as yummy, child-pleasing taste.
Why offer sugary drinks when you can introduce children to a far better alternative -- one that might spark a life-long love for life-enhancing herbs? No tea party should be without it! (Do not use if pregnant or nursing. Consult a licensed health care professional before using this product if currently using medication or if there is a pre-existing disease.)"

Now, why would I want to give it to my kids if a pregnant person shouldn't drink it?
