I would say it depends on the tap water. In some areas, while it may be 'ok' for adults to consume, the more sensitive stomachs of kids could have problems with it.

I personally cannot consume most tap water, unless I am positive of the proven source of the water, and even then its questionable, so I filter everything. If not, I drink a quality bottled water (for mainly when I travel) Ground minerals differ everywhere, and people have different reactions to different minerals. Our water in this area isn't 'bad', per se, it just has too many ground minerals in it for my body to handle.
