I have yet to give the girls soda. Do you give your child soda? If you do, at what age did you start? Kaitlyn has been seeing kids her age drinking soda and has been asking when can she can have some. :\ Im really not rushing for her to have it.

Our kids are 8, 6, & 2 and haven't had soda. There's just no need for kids to have it so we don't do it. We do juice, water, or milk for our kids. And in fact, our kids don't even drink full-strength juice--they water it down, half-water/half-juice. We don't have to do it for them anymore; they do it themselves now!

Yes my kids drink it. They are almost 10,8 and 7 (in a couple months for all of them). I can't remember when we started it but it was probably introduced at some random party or event like a fair/carnival, etc.

Definitely been a few years so Braedon being the youngest had it at the earliest age most likely was around 4 or 5 years old. It's not an every day event but we do keep drinks in our spare fridge (all drinks capri sun, soft drinks, beer, bottled water, wine). The only thing the kids are allowed to get without asking is water otherwise they have to ask for it. Soft drinks are allowed about once a week usually on weekends and they normally don't even finish a can , it's poured out.

Ryan is 7 and has tried soda a few times and does not like the bubbles or taste at all so no soda for him which I told him was a good healthy habit and I was proud of him. I too have cut my soda drinking WAAAAAYYYY down from what it used to be.
