Diet Coke for children at 6.30?

Currently in airport lounge with dd1 (6) and dd2 (9) and dh. Dh took girls to get a drink (I was thinking milk, tea, water, juice) and he can back with Diet Coke for them. It's 6.30 FFS. I expressed my surprise at the choice of drink, he got huffy. Then dd2 asked if she could get some fruit and natural yoghurt and he said 'No, you've had enough now!'
WTF. At least that's a healthy choice! Been up for hours and will have no chance to recover before meeting up with dh's family so probably just tired and cranky but this just doesn't make sense to me. They have only had Coke recently (not given by me but at parties etc) and I don't want it to seem as though it's ok to have it whenever they see it!

DDs had had cereal at 4am. Diet Coke is just not something I had as a child (maybe once or twice at a party) so for me it's definitely not something you have for breakfast. I'm not a monster - I accept they will be offered it at parties and other people's houses but I wouldn't encourage it myself!
Am tired yes so accept I'm probably more irritable than usual!
