  • Nope...why would I? It has absolutely NO nutritional value and it causes their teeth to rot out even if they brush twice a day.

  • No. We hardly drink it ourselves so it's not much of an issue. If they ask to have a drink of ours we just tell them it's a grown up drink. They are used to that answer because I drink mocha's and dh has the occasional alcoholic drink. I will also say in all fairness my girls are 2 and 3yrs old so who knows how much longer I can control it, but I will as long as I can.

  • I only let my daughter drink pop maybe once or twice a month. If she does it is caffeine free. She has always been a milk, water, and juice drinker anyway.
