  • I guess I will be the different one - Yes, but it isn't on a regular basis. My plan was to not give it to them until they were older but between grandparents and dh that went out the window. lol My boys are 2 and 3. The 2 year old doesn't really like it, just wants it because his brother, who is 3, gets it. They only have it at a birthday party, if we go out to eat, something special. They have whatever is caffeine free. I don't see the harm in things like soda if it is in moderation.

  • On occasion when we go out to eat, I'll let them get a Sprite. That's the only time and it's rare.

  • Neither of my kids drinks soda (ages 3 and 1). Way too young for that IMO. I'm not sure when I'll let my 3 year old drink soda, but definitely not for years to come.

    We were never offered soda when we were kids, only milk, water or juice. I don't think I even tasted soda until I was 7 or 8.

  • My kids are 3 and 1, and the only time they have soda is if I accidentally leave a sip or two in a can on the kitchen counter, and they're resourceful enough to climb up on a chair.

    LOL so no, I don't willingly give them soda, but they've definitely tasted it on occasion. ;-)

  • I allow him one sip here and there but that is about it, he is 5 years old

  • my dd is 8 she has soda sometimes..not everyday but when we go out to eat she usually gets one.

    Answer by ria7 at 2:52 PM on Oct. 7, 2010

  • No. Soda is very bad for anybody. It makes them hyper and overweight
