My daughter has been allowed some rootbeer on a few occasions. It's a treat, and like anything else, I believe it's fine in moderation. I don't think I have bought a case of soda in...well..YEARS! (except for my husband's graduation party, but we sent the extra stuff home with my friends). My daughter is 22 months and has had soda maybe 6 or 7 times, about the same amount of times she's had her own candy bar or little debbie snack. Treats are fine in moderation IMO, and soda falls under the category of treat.

She has only had soda when everyone else is having some, to partake of it and not allow her some sort of treat seems very unfair. It's how I was raised and I don't have soda even on a weekly basis, I'm hoping that allowing it, and setting the example that treats are fine on *occasion* she'll develop the same attitude. Could I drink soda everyday? You bet I could, it's tasty stuff! But I don't need it and I would like my daughter to see that. To each their own though, letting your kid have soda everyday isn't going to kill them, and never allowing them to have it certainly isn't going to kill them either! ;)

My daughter has a sip from a straw about half the time as I do...which is almost never...she doesnt even really want it inparticular, just wants to drink whatever I have. If I am out and I happen to be having soda, I get sprite so it's the same color as water... give her her own little cup of water with a straw so she doesnt feel left out with having her sippy to drink.

I used to be an oral surgeon's assistant and I have seen very bad cases of small children with teeth so decayed that they had to be taken out. We get the patients when they need their teeth taken out, when the dentist can do no more....I dont want my daughter's teeth to ever get like that. Her baby teeth have to last her at least 5 years to when her adult teeth start coming in. She drinks mostly water and milk, and water with a dab of juice for taste from a sippy or straw. I actually like the straw for less of a chance of the fluids hitting the back of the 2 top front teeth which are the most at risk for cavities due to the design of the sippy cup.

Only on super rare special occasions.... and the 4 of us share one. I don't drink it any more than they do, so it isn't around and it most definitely is NOT needed. :)

Oh Lord! Soda isn't heroine! Haven't you heard that if you forbid something they're just going to want it more? Case in point when my dad was growing up his mom had him and the other 6 kids on a very strict vegan diet. When they were old enough they learned to be very sneaky with getting foods that were forbidden and when they were allowed off the diet at 18 a lot of them gorged on foods they were forbidden. Most of my aunts on my dad's side of the family are extremely over weight because of this.
I'm not giving my daughter a cigarette or a blunt, I give her the option once or twice a month to have a soda instead of juice or milk or water. Amazingly enough she'd choose milk or juice over soda anyways. I believe that it's because my daughter is given a choice of what she can have for a drink or food helps her make better choices than if she's forbidden something that other kids get to have.

It is just like any other junk food on the market Tanya it is all fine in moderation depending on the age of the child.

Interesting conversation. Sugar is as addictive as heroine. Actually, it can be more addictive. Here you can read many articles about the dangers of soda consumptions: http://www.naturalnews.com/soda.html
Here is the article that speaks about how even one glass a day will increase your risk for diabetes:http://www.naturalnews.com/030489_sugary...
There is an epidemic of childhood obesity in this country. We are getting sicker and sicker as a nation. It is our responsibility to educate ourselves about the dangers of foods that we are consuming. These children are innocent. They follow what we do and what we allow. I bet those of us who allow soda drinking for our kids, drink soda ourselves. Probably would have a hard time giving it up. I watched my sister-in-law feed her kids what her and her husband were eating. They were overweight and now the kids are overwheight and struggling with asthma and -re-learning what is a way they can nourish themselves that is healthy in their twenties. My heart goes out to children that are victims of their parents' ingnorance.

I do not allow my daughter to have soda, she is almost 4 years old and has had soda maybe 3 times in her life. Soda is unhealthy and addictive, if my child wants to become addicted to soda that should be her decision as an adult, not my decision as her parent. When she is old enough to purchase soda for herself, she will be permitted to have soda.
I drink alot of soda, but have cut back significantly in recent months.
My ss's biomom gives him tons of soda, but i do not let him have it when he is at my house, my husband and I agree that soda is an adult priveledge not to be forced on children. By the way--my kiddos dont ask for it. They are allowed water, juice boxes, some lightly sugared koolaid, and sprite on special occasions such as birthday parties and holidays when we are at the grandparents houses.

@ Crystal & Sherri. I don't know because her name won't show up on my screen. She was implying I'm a horrid role model for my child though. Here's the post:

- posted 5 hours ago

Megan- it may not be heroin, but it certainly is as if not more addictive. "Parenting" means to do what you believe is "BEST" for your kids- knowing better, but not doing it is worse then not knowing. There will always be exeptions to the rule, but in general, why would I poison my body or my child knowingly? I am investing at this point in osteoporosis/ diabetes meds and hearing aid stock- the way its being mishandled and abused, the companies producing that will skyrocket because of people that think " a little bit is ok" and then, when no harm is immediatly seen, it becomes full term. I am sorry for the family of yours that is extremely overweight, but isnt that knowingly their choice too? Doesnt seem like the smartest choice to me and what a poor role-model :(

I'm not sure where she gets the idea that my entire family is heavy, 4 out of the 5 of my dad's sisters yes because of being on a restrictive diet until they were 18. But my daughter is underweight according to her pediatrician. The rest of my family is healthy. Aside from genetic problems. I really don't appreciate anyone saying I'm a bad role model for my child because I gave her a choice and she didn't choose to drink soda all the time. It's not like I offered my 6 year old a beer.

I let my kids on occasion, like i'll let them have a sip of mine, or if the soda fountain is out of hi-c, then I'll let them have sprite, or another caffeine free soda, And of course at parties if the other kids are drinking it. But other than that, no. they regularly drink water, milk, or juice. And they always have water bottles around the house.

Yes I give my kids soda and that includes koolaid and tea as I consider that a soda. BUT its not an everyday thing maybe once a week and sometimes it does have caffiene in it. If we go to McD's or some place out they usually order sweet tea or fruit punch or sprite. At home they get water V8 fusion or milk or almond milk. I am a diet dr pepper addict but I dont give it to my kids.

I couldn't go an hour without drinking a soda and it wasn't the caffeine. Went through way too much of the stuff until my kidneys started to malfunction. Dr. told me I had to quit soda and Ibuprophen, little tea and coffee. I quit cold turkey. It was easier than I thought. Glad he didn't take me off coffee.

No my kids do not get soda. My husband refused to give them pop when they were smaller cause of weight problems. He said that if kids drink to much pop it contributes to odesity and so he said no right from the start and even though our parents would occasionally give them pop when they were babysitting our daughter(6) does not like it but our son(3) will drink it if u let him but we don't buy pop. My husband has it with his meals when we go out and i will to if they don't have juice or chocolate milk. but our daughter likes chocolate milk and our son always asks for orange juice.

"Omg are you ladies serious Soda is NOT addictive caffine isnt even addictive someone who is addicted to something cant go hours without it i can go days without soda even though i usually drink two or more a day."

Caffeine is highly addictive. Ever have a caffeine headache? That's your body going through withdrawal. Addiction is your body needing a substance to function properly. That's why you can get addicted to things like nasal spray, caffeine, sugar, and cough medicine. Addiction is a continued involvement with a substance or activity despite the negative consequences associated with it. Pleasure and enjoyment would have originally been sought, however over a period of time involvement with the substance or activity is needed to feel normal.

Brandy: The article you linked to is looking for a specific "addictive behavior" with regards to caffeine. It's saying that because people don't go out and hook for a soda or become violent when they can't have a coffee (although I sometimes have). Just because a person's behavior is not that of an addict does not mean their body is not addicted to a substance.

http://health.usnews.com/health-news/die...

http://www.medicinenet.com/caffeine/arti...

Now I'm not saying that cola is any where NEAR as dangerous as heroin, alcohol, tobacco, or any other controlled substance. But the fact is that caffeine IS an addictive substance.

No way! I'm a dental hygienist, that sugar is so bad for their teeth. I have seen enough screaming toddlers getting cavities filled to know I don't want my little girl to have to go through that. She gets water and milk. Once in a great while I give her juice, but it is half diluted with sugar. The longer you wait to introduce soda the better. If they never have it when they are little they won't know what they are missing out on. Plus they don't need the caffiene that is in a lot of them!

I have a daughter who is nearly 5 yrs old. She has been drinking soda since she was she snuck some diet coke from her grandfather. She is tall for her age and very generic and is doing very well in school. She is very health and has no health issue. I do make sure that she doesnt get it too late in the day thoough to make bed time a little more pleasant. While I am not arguing in favor of it I don't thing that its a horrible thing to do either. You also need to gauge your child and see what type of reaction they have to the sugar and caffeine amongst other things. Some juices have more sugar and although I have not seen anyone mention it so far, flavored milk has more sugar than a soda.

My husband and stepson (17) are huge soda drinkers and I usually drink water at dinner, but do drink soda on the weekend (or sweet tea). My youngest boys (6 and 8) are able to drink soda if we go out (once a week or less) and at one meal on the weekend. Usually, I give them milk and water. I see it as a treat they can have in moderation and if they learn to moderate it now, hopefully they won't go after it hardcore when they're older. Otherwise, I mainly want their drinks to supplement their nutrition, not hinder. =)

My son RARELY gets soda... every once in a while I'll give him some sprite (its about a 3% sprite, 97% water) ratio. However, he thinks he is getting something special. But, he is also only 2. I don't buy soda for at home either... it is not needed ... it only contributes to being overweight and unhealthy!

Well, my kids are 12 and 14, when they were little we only had milk, water or juice. Now my 14 gets one soda a day instead of Ritilan. He also still drinks a lot of water. My 12 year old could keep it or leave it. They are both underweight, I don't think the soda is that detrimental to them.

NO! Soda pop is the worst thing you can give your child short of alcohol and 2nd hand smoke. It lowers their immune system, and lays the foundation for lots of health problems later in life.

well like i said, it affects EVERYONE differently. i smoked cigarettes a pack a day for 5 years, and i quit at the drop of a hat, i wasn't actually addicted, it was just a habit. so my body didn't become addicted to it, i just felt like doing it. there ARE people who are addicted to caffeine, it happens. but not to most people. it CAN become addictive, it just depends on the individual person.
and GOOD FOR YOU!!! that's awesome! :)

I have 3 boys, 13, 8 and 6 respectively. When then were little we had a no soda policy. So, you live and you learn! What I've learned is, a soda for dinner won't hurt them (the oldest STILL doesn't get it for breakfast like he wants to!). I make them brush before bed and I've found since they are used to having it, they don't get as hyper nor do they try to sneak like some of their friends. Hope this helps

My daughter does drink Blue Sky natural soda (she's 15) but I make her drink it mixed with Seltzer water. Half and half. It's not good for her but it's better than other soda's since it doesn't have all the chemicals and additives in it. It took time for her to get used to drinking it watered down but now she actually prefers it that way. That is not to say that she does not get the occasional full flavored and chemical additive crap of a pepsi or coke. But it's rare.

caffeine IS addictive! i'm not trying to make anyone mad, it's just proven scientific FACT. people who smoke crack don't do it every five minutes, they do it a few times a day. addictive substances affect people differently. you might have a soda once a week, well i'm sure there's someone out there that shoots up heroin just once a week. every substance is different, and every body is different. but it IS addictive.

I LOVE Mt Dew even though I know it is bad for me. I do keep pop in the house and my kids dont usually drink it. When we have a "Pizza/Popcorn and Movie night" I let them have a small cup. That is maybe about 1 x per month. I usually get sprite, orange, strawberry, or root beer when I know they are going to be drinking some. They dont get it when we go out to eat or anything. They like it, but say its "spicy" from the carbination. I think things in moderation are ok. My kids drink water, juice and milk on a daily basis. Ocassionally they also get strawberry/chocolate milk. They are 4 & 6.

I give my son soda because i believe as with anything else as long as its in moderation its fine he has about half a cup with dinner if he has any in the house and i always get the kind with no caffeine and no diet sodas because of the artificial sweeteners i think in our society today its unrealistic to say a child never gets soda... 90%of the time though i give him milk water and juice.

When my children were young they drank soda but that was before we knew how bad it was for them. I'm a grandma now and my grandson drinks water, juice and milk but no soda at all and that's great for his health. Soda has no nutrition so it's not good for children. If you decide to allow it make sure it's caffeine free and an occasional treat.

No, because it isn't good for them. I'm fine with them having it on a special occasion, like a birthday party or something. But I have found that none of my kids like it, they don't like the carbonation.

megan- i'm not sure who is attacking you because i haven't read all 9 pages of comments, but i agree with you. they should definitely not have it. my 2 1/2yo only gets milk, water, and organic, no sugar added not from concentrate juice halved with water. we always have home cooked meals, and try to keep them as healthy as possible, and her all time favorite snacks are fruits and vegetables, she prefers grapes to candy. but i don't think it's HORRIBLE to let them try it, i'm not going to give her a cup of it, and we NEVER have it in the house, we go out to eat like once a month and i usually have water, but the rare times i have soda (probably once every two or three months) she can have one sip. i don't encourage drinking it, i don't put it in her face, she sees it and wants to try it. i also think it's terrible to give your kid kool aid, cheap juice, and artificial sweeteners all the time, it will kill their health fast. but i don't think a tiny, tiny bit will hurt anything. i wish i was like you and strong enough to never crave it. and my daughter gets sugar now, more than i wish, because the only system she would respond to for potty training was rewards of m&m's, because it was something rare she never gets to have, so she gets about 10 m&m's a day, so she doesn't get any other kind of sugary snack or treat unless she goes potty. i'm kind of rambling, i just wanted to let you know not EVERYONE is against you :)

My 10-year-old son rarely gets soda, and when he does it's something caffiene-free. Most root beers are caffiene free, so he drinks that. He's epileptic and his siezures are induced by lack of sleep, so he doesn't even drink Pepsi or Coke because they still have caffiene in them. Even if it doesn't do much to an adult, ANY caffiene is too much for a kid as far as I'm concerned. As far as soda in general goes, we don't drink it very often, but we do let the kids have it now and then. My step kids drink soda more than my son does, and it drives me up the wall to see an 11 year old drinking Mountain Dew, and a 14 year old BEGGING for an energy drink! I always tell them no, and while they may get upset with me, I always stnd my ground and my husband stands right with me on it. There is no reason whatsoever that these kids should be having caffiene! I don't think that kids should be drinking solely soda, but I really don't see the harm in one now and then. As long as good dental hygiene is practiced, it's no more likely to rot their teeth as juice or Gatorade (which studies have shown is worse than soda for teeth and braces cement!)

My son is five... No. I don't allow it and I don't drink it either. But he has sipped a few times from my husband's cup and really loves it. So I am very careful to keep it out of the house... and on rare occasions when nothing else is available...

[deleted account]

Here are my top reasons why our kids did not drink pop (soda)...every now and then, when we are out somewhere and have to....
it is OK once in awhile for a "treat", we are not legalistic about it, but...
COST...why spend money on something that is only empty calories?
TEETH...why rot their teeth when they are brand new?
CALCIUM...have heard that soda leeches calcium out of our bones.. reason enough for me
WEIGHT...again, the empty calories...would rather they gain weight on something healthi(er) like graham crackers, which at least give them some fiber and protein than just sugar water (colored, and sometimes caffeinated)
Again, MODERATION is the key...we don't want to be the soda police who will cause our kids to look down on others who "don't drink"...so once in awhile, let them have some, but not often! Explain your reasons, too, as they get old enough to understand!

Our oldest was actually 3 years old before he realized...
We were in WalMart, and he saw a pop machine with 7 Up (which we used for sick tummies only) and he cried out, "Look , Mommy! That's for when you're SICK ,right?" I knew this would only last for this one child, for a very short time, and sure enough...the others never thought that for a moment! :)

No, occasionally my daughter will have a sip of mine when we're out and about...but it is rare, and I don't think it's happened in a long time! My kids don't even really get juice. If they get juice it's either when we're out and about (like having dinner out or at a friend or family members house) or sometimes at dinner...and it's never more than 2-4 ounces. I know first hand at how bad it is for your teeth...I have a nephew with horrible teeth, and he's only 6! I like to have a can of pepsi with dinner, but I try not to drink it much myself. My husband is really bad though! He could go through 3-4 cans before work...and he's only home/up for 2-3 hours before he leaves!

I beg your pardon? My daughter is 48 inches tall and 42lbs, When she was in an at home day care her babysitter would tell me she was the only one to eat all her fruits and vegatables. My daughter is 6 right now and makes better food choices than I do at times. Her school lunches consist of yogurt, fruits, veggies and the usual healthy choices she and I make together. I don't see how allowing my child to make a choice for something she'd have (and I'll repeat myself because it seems you didn't pay attention the first time) ONCE OR TWICE A MONTH will affect her. I make sure she gets extra calcium because her paternal grandmother and her father both have scoliosis. And my daughter knows that soda isn't good as an all the time thing because as a health care provider I told her what the carbination and other chemicals can do to her body. Which is again why it's a sometimes drink. YOu know like a cookie is a sometimes food.
So how about a little less 'Holier than thou' and a little more 'judge not lest ye be judged' hmm?

My kids 7 & 9 are allowed one soda a day but no caffeine. My husband drinks 6 cans a day of diet soda and I drink one a day. I would feel like a hypocrite if my husband and I drank soda and did not let the kids. Soda is not healthy but neither is cake, cookies or cheez-its and we eat those too. Moderation is the key. I talked to our family doctor and he said a variety of drinks is good. The kids also drink milk, juice, water and crystal light.

Absolutely NOT! My children do not need any more sugar in their diet as they are hyper enough by them selves. They are 4 and 3 yrs old and I do not plan on giving them soda until they are waaaay older. They have tasted it and luckily they don't like it, I guess the carbonation is too much for them. But what good comes from giving children soda? Keep them healthy and they will learn healthy habits for their future. My mom did and I rarely drink soda. I don't buy it, if I do have some it is out side the house, but stick to natural juices and waters. They will thank you for it when they are grown up!

Never have. My boys are almost 4 and 5 yrs old. At home they get milk in the morning, water the remainder of the day. On the rare occasion we go out, they can have either milk, water or sweet tea. They've never tasted soda and very very rarely have juice. We grew up drinking juices and sodas constantly and it took a long time to break the habit. Not going to do that to my boys!

M-b W-u I do feed my kids amazingly healthy. I cook home cooked meals every single day, we only eat organic and we don't have junk in our home. However, we do allow them the occasional junk just like any other kid. They are not told no if they choose to order a soda in a restaurant because they know it is a treat. We have taught them junk food or drink is not a daily thing but an every once in while treat. Just like I wouldn't feed them cake everyday soda is in the same catagory. Once in a while is okay. Everything in moderation.

I drink the occasional diet Pepsi. I don't keep it in my house, more for me not because of my child. My son (age 8) loves ginger ale and seven up, because it is one of the remedies he gets for the stomach ache. A soda is a super special treat. His favorite drink is Izze, which is fruit juice and carbonation. It is hard to keep kids away from something that is so commercialized and everywhere. I know many parents who don't monitor the intake of soda or energy drinks with their children, which is sad to me

noooo. maybe one tiny sip from mommy's cup when she begs but that's IT. i very rarely drink it unless we're out, which is not often, so she very rarely gets a taste. and i brush her teeth almost immediately after she eats/drinks something really sugary. and why not regularly? because the caffeine is terrible for their health, and way too much sugar than any kid ever should have. i don't think my kids will ever get a full cup of soda until they're at least in elementary school.

Never! The stuff is discusting. The amount of tooth decay it produces is phenominal, not to mention the amount of sugar and other horrid things it contains. If you can clean a toilet with coke imagine what it does to your insides!

Sherri- my ids range from 24 to 6 years old. Way back when my oldest was young, I saw things different then now, taught her different. Now that she is off and married, SHE is teaching her friends how to live healthy since they didnt learn, where given "their choice" and they come to her wanting to know more, learn more - knowingly making a healthier choice. It is human behavior to always choose the laziest path unless consciously make a different/healthier choice - knowing better, having a healthy leadership, no "yo-yo" around. I dont with- hold, but I make my own point and stand strong with that. Looking around, in allot of ways we feed our animal better and with more thought then our kids- since our animals dont know better and we hold responsibility.... kinda sad if you think about that.

My son (4) doesn't drink soda...he actually doesn't like the taste of it yet. I rarely drink it but my husband drinks quite a bit of Diet Coke so it's in the house all the time. My son knows that his drinks are water, juice, milk. If he wants a "treat" drink, then it's chocolate milk, not soda. He recently went to the dentist and the dentist explained to him why soda and gummy snacks are bad for his teeth and he really has taken it to heart. He doesn't ask for it at all. I figure he's going to be drinking enough of it when he's old enough to make the choice himself and hopefully by setting the example, he'll make the choice to drink something healthier.
