  • My daughter (2 as of Friday before last) gets a little sip here and there, but she's only had a cup of half soda (Sierra Mist, I think) and half water for herself one time. She usually drinks just water, and will only take milk besides water. She doesn't even really like juice very much.

  • My son will be 6 in about 10 days and he's had soda twice. Once at a birthday party (sprite) and once my MIL gave him ginger ale when he complained of a belly ache

    My daughter is 4, soon 4 1/2 and has had soda only once and that was sprite at a b-day party.

    My kids will not drink pop under my roof. Once a year at a special event is even too much IMHO.

  • Just a few sips. Try to focus more on low sugar juice (9-12gram range), costco is carrying come juice low sugar content, fruit and veggies included, taste pretty good, on sale right now 2.50 off 24 ct sales for 8.99 I believe.

  • It makes me CRINGE when I see kids drinking pop. I always soothe myself by thinking "wow their Mom must have really awesome dental insurance!" and hope that when their teeth start rotting out they'll be saved instead of pulled and have enter adulthood w/ a socially acceptable smile. Everywhere u go has water (or milk, or juice) even Mcdonalds now. There's really no excuse.......
