  • Just a sip or two of my diet coke. Coke is an addiction and it should not be allowed to start early.

  • I don't buy soda of any kind, but I don't NOT let them drink it either. If we have some or if we are somewhere where it's available, they are more than welcome to drink it... But I just don't like Soda generally, so I don't spend money on it.

  • I wouldn't give a three year old soda. It will rot their baby teeth quickly with all the sugar and stuff in it.

  • This is going to go against somebody's parenting belief.. but I let my 6 years old Daughter drink non-caffeinated sodas when we're eating greasy food like pizza, ribs, etc.. While growing up, my Mom let us drink soda when eating greasy food to help it go down smoother. :)

  • I have a 6, 4, and 2 yr old. They get sips occasionally but its more like a "treat" then a regular thing. My 6 yr old will occasionally get a small amount in a glass(like 1/4 of the glass is all)...same deal, treat only not a regular thing.

  • Coke is my treat. I don't drink it every day and it is NOT a part of our food budget. I do however like a little bit every now and then. I would rather spend my money on better for you things. I do not let my son drink it though. I know my husband secretly lets him have some cut with water.
