My daughter is not allowed to have soda at home. Soda used to be a treat she would get from my Dad but it was a small amount.   We will let her have some if we are out somewhere and there is no other option but that is very rare.  Kylie mainly drinks water, milk and some juice.

I rarely let my son have soda and my husband and I never drink it.  When I buy my son soda,  I get the Hansen's that is caffiene free and has cane sugar.  He loves it and it is not totally nasty like cokes and other sodas.  If we are at a party or something and he asks to have a soda I will let him,  but it does not happen often at all.

 hardly ever.....

I let my oldest have flavored seltzer water with dinner sometimes (younger gal doesn't like it.)

other than that - only if we are at a relative or a party where there is no other choice.

they drink OJ, fruit/veggie mix juice, lemonade sometimes and milk mostly.

gatorade here and there -especially after being sick!

UM NEVER. They're under 4. They have water and milk, and orange juice with breakfast!

My kids are allowed caffeine free soda once a week. Usually with my parents when they watch them. Rootbeer or Sprite only. Usually they drink milk, water, or watered down juice (3/4 water, 1/4 juice).

 They really only get it at in-laws or when we go out to eat. They mainly drink water or milk.
