Do your kids drink pop?

I give my 8 and 2 yr old juices and milk. If they have pop, it's usually if we go for dinner and they drink something caffeine free like sprite.

  • No, not unless we're somewhere and soda is the only option. Like parties or something. My daughter only drinks apple juice and milk.

  • No. I don't like it at all, and my husband isn't a huge fan so we just don't have it but I've never attempted to give it to my son. He grabbed a can and took a swig once and made a face, but wanted more, so I guess maybe he would like it but I don't really care to find out. He's only 2 and doesn't need soda, even on occassion.

  • I try to limit my 5 yr old to soda maybe once a week and never close to bed time

  • Maybe once every month or two - only if we go out to eat and it's the only option. If chocolate milk is an option they'll choose that. If they have pop at a restaurant it's either sometihng like sprite, or root beer.
