Whining is a parent taught behavior. If it doesn't work then kids don't do it. You may need to change how you say no and then you need to ignore begging. If the child ever begs then they never get what they want when they whine, then they will learn mom means what she says.
If a child asks something in a whining voice say, "I'm sorry, I don't unserstand whining voices." If your child has had this behavior for awhile then there may be some tantrums but as the child learns then the whining should stop. When my kids would bring kids over to play that had these kind of behaviors it never took me long to teach them it wasn't going to work with me.

Don't give in and if the behavior persists, take away a privilege.
