  • As a treat, no. As a complete meal, yes.

  • no. are you serious? a kid should be able to have a candy bar and a soda pop every once in a while. not for a meal but for fun

  • No. My 2 yr old gets some occasionally, not on a daily basis.
    But sometimes she will see me with it and want a sip.

    She hates candy? Weird, right? She likes to eat those flintstones vitamins as candy,
    lmao.. Anyhow.

  • Oh yes and I think it is abusive to let them watch tv, drink juice, run around, listen to the radio, stay up past 7 in the evening, to let girls play with trucks and boys play with dolls, and give them bottles and cups when they go to bed at night.

    Seriously, how many of these are you going to post?

  • In place of meals, yes it is neglectful. As a treat, no.

  • as a meal, yes I would say that it is a bit neglectful. As an OCCASIONAL treat, not a big deal. I personally dont give that stuff to my daughter but whatever.
