Children drinking sodas

Everyday it seems I see children under the age of five sucking down sodas at restaurants, playgrounds and more. I personally think children should never be given soda, it's almost as bad as giving them cigarettes, addicting.

Do you disapprove of soda drinking for little ones? Do you let your kids have soda?

We didn't let our 10 year old drink soda at that age.

They are allowed to have a taste. Their own though? No.

Nor are they allowed to have a taste every single time that an adult has a soda

No soda here. My older 3 I waited until they were 12 and it was only once in a while. My youngest is only 5 and doesn't get it.

Well Ryan is only 2 months but for us it is 9+ to drink soda and until they move out of the house or unless they can't find anything to drink at restaurants no member in our family can drink more that 1 bottle a day.

Mine like to have it when we eat out, which is once a month. They like to have it other times. We don't keep it on hand. I don't have problem with it. They love ginger ale and Haines.

Our girls are four now and we haven't let them have soda. With the exception of a root beer float once in awhile, but they only like the way it makes the ice cream taste, they don't drink the root beer. Haha

the only time I gave DS soda was one time when we made rootbeer floats. He didn't drink it. Otherwise, I don't drink it and neither does he. Grandpa and daddy give him very occasional sips, and I just roll my eyes.
