At what age did you/will you...

lets your kid(s) have soda? My Sil says all her 4 yr old will drink is soda,caffeinated by the way. His Headstart teacher had a fight on her hands when she,gasp! tried to get him to have some water. He currently weighs 70 lbs by the way...
My son has never had soda. I don't allow it.

  • my 3 yr old has had it. it's not something she gets on a regular basis though. when she goes to grandmas is about it. she prefers milk or juice.

  • he's 5yo, and he probably had his first around 4ish...he doesn't drink it often, because we don't buy it often. he'd much rather have water or milk (2% is our household choice), and when he drinks juice, it is still diluted.

  • I have no idea when / if I will let my kids have soda. They are 8 and 5 and haven't had it yet.

  • My kids are 5, 3 1/2 and haven't ever had soda. I don't plan to allow them to have any soon either. I honestly don't know what age I will find it appropriate. But so far my neice is 11 and I still don't think she should have it yet.

  • My kids are 2 and 6. The 6 year old gets it on occasion. He usually picks something else though. The 2 year old has had a few sips here and there but not really ever had her own cup, wait once last week. I'm not sure she had before that though...

  • mine gets to have a soda on special occassions, parties or holidays, but even thenit's only one. We don't even keep soda in the house so it's not an option at home.
