Soda for a 16 month old?

We went out to dinner at Souper Salads last week, and the cashier asked me what kind of soda I wanted for my 16 month old.
Really?
I told her that water would be fine, and she asked if I was sure.
Um, Yes, I am sure!
Is it really that common for people to give their kids that are under 2 soda?

My 6 year old still doesn't drink any. They are fine with water, milk or juice.

Meh, maybe she's not a mom?  Maybe she was just trying to serve well.

Good Lord I hope not. I would give my kids a sip once in awhile but to let them have a whole one? No way.

I had a rootbearfloat... (it was caffine free) and ds wanted a little. so I gave him some of the ice cream from it...and some rootbeer came with it... but thats the only time hes ever had any pop... he is 17month... we usually opt for water, milk or rarely diluted juice...

 We don't do soda in our house at any age.

I asked the waitress if she knew if the cashier had kids. She told me the lady has teens.
I was floored.

I gave my son who is under 2 sprite. He was puking and was told to try it by his drs nurse. He hates it. I wouldn't give him any other sodas though.

my dd is 5 and she doesn't get any soda at all.  kids don't need that.  actually, no one needs it.
