  • No.

    Unless we're in a situation where there is no juice or milk, like a party or something. Then I try to dilute it with a ton of water because my daughter won't drink straight water.

  • I don't buy it. It's never in our house. But if we are at someone else's house and it is offered, they can have it. Or at a restaurant.

  • I have three kids. Get groceries every two weeks. I get a six pack for them and when it's gone that is it.

  • only when we go out to eat and even then they have a choice and usually choose milk or juice so they might have soda once every coupld of months.

  • Only for a special treat. Our youngest girl is behind in speach and will not talk at school to anyone so when good she might get a small glass with dinner but not much cause only 5. The 7, and 9 year old maybe once a week and that is all. If any soft drink it is 7 up.
