is it okay to give a 14 month old kool aid?

My husband gave our 14 month old some kool aid today.. he makes it very watery for the girls, for some reason they all love it like that, haha.. but I have never given her anything like that, she loved it of course.. but is it something you just shouldnt give to them at such a young age?

  • Yeah,that's a bit young for me. They have their entire lives to get hooked on sugar.

  • I hope it was sugar free. Once you start them on sugar it's downhill from there. Sugar is addictive.

  • No one should have it. It's terrible for you. But just once isn't going to do any harm. If I were you, I'd stop buying it for your girls.

  • it's not the best drink of choice for anyone, at that age or older. its loaded with sugar and empty calories. but one time won't hurt her. moderation wouldn't either.

  • While it is not all that healthy or nutritious a little won't hurt. I would not make a habit of it though.

  • it's not going to hurt her, but I would still avoid it.....kool aid is all sugar, might as well give her a cup of sugar with a few drops of water, lol.

    100% fruit juice is good for something sweet.....and you can dilute it in some unsweetened ice tea if you want
