  • Rarely if ever. Sprite is what he gets if anything. The only time he gets even that is when relatives give it to him typcially when they are babysitting. We've asked them to stop it entirely though.

  • Occasionally, but it's rare that we even have it in the house... I always keep Ginger Ale in the house, because it's the only thing that helps with my nausea, but I told my kids it's medicine for mommies belly (which is how I use it) and they don't drink it... But when we have parties or go out to eat, I will let them get soda once in a while... I don't see it as a bad thing.

  • i actually offered soda to my 4 (almost 5) year old the other day... she was at a birthday party and there was mostly soda, and then water. she drinks water all the time. i offered and she said, "no. i want water" talk about a proud mama! my kids don't drink soda. we still water down our juice... and now my 4 year old is on a "diet" of no acidic foods... so no juice at all. water and milk for my goobs!

  • if my kids get anything it is usually sprite and that is when we go out to eat or to a fast food which is usually once a week

  • sprite or rootbeer depending on the kind of rootbeer it is and only the older 3 not the 18 month old. And that is usually 1 a month if that.
