Should a 4 year old drink soda?!

Question: Should a 4 year old drink soda!?
because my niece just asked me for sum of my pepsi and i want whats best for her

and yes i'm only 13Www@FoodAQ@Com

I think it would be best if she didn't drink the Pepsi!. I didn't drink soda until i was 6!.!.!. and then i had it on rare occasions!. With all the teeth still developing, you don't want to put bad habits in her, because her 6 year molars or w/e are coming in soon!. So maybe try not to drink much soda around her!?Www@FoodAQ@Com

Definitely and give her a bit of tequila too - there's no harm in that, right!?

Seriously, with half the kids in America becoming obese, I'm not sure if that's such a good idea!. Unless your niece is like me, and couldn't gain weight if she drank soda 24/7!. Which brings up a whole new set of problems with cavities!. So all around not a good idea!. Www@FoodAQ@Com

Eh at 4 why not I mean honestly everything someone eats now it's good so obviously they are allowed to if they know what it is and are asking for it

Just tell the parents and if they say she isn't allowed soda then you know for next timeWww@FoodAQ@Com

No no no no no!.!.!.!. it's not healthy, even for us our age!.

I'm in cross country and when I drink soda I feel the BURN the next day!.
But anyway if your niece gets addicted to soda she might get *cough unhealthier in a matter of *cough size!. Www@FoodAQ@Com

i say no , maybe once in a while , but not on a regular basis, i have 4 kids and there is no soda bought in our house, i will allow my kids on Special occasions eating out to have it !.!.!.!.Www@FoodAQ@Com

It is not healthy and it is full of sugar!. She can certainly have a little, I would not give her much!. Just enough to satisfy her curiosity!.Www@FoodAQ@Com

I dont think you should give her pepsi it has too much caffine, maybe you could give her a little bit of lemonade!.!.!.watered down maybe!.Www@FoodAQ@Com

Pepsi vodkaWww@FoodAQ@Com

Give her a little beer instead!. She will never want soda or beer again, and be a lot healthier for it!.Www@FoodAQ@Com

Not really!. The sugar and caffeine can keep her awake for hours!. Diet ginger ale or 7-UP is OK in very small amounts!.Www@FoodAQ@Com

as long as it doesn't become a habit!. i can of soda = 9 teaspoons of sugar!. Www@FoodAQ@Com

why not, i am 13 soda rules!. i do not think that soda will harm a 4 year oldWww@FoodAQ@Com

not very much it has alot of sugar and if you give her alot of sugar she will be off the wallsWww@FoodAQ@Com

maybe, but not too much!. definitely not a whole glass though, that would be badWww@FoodAQ@Com


Yeah she is fineeWww@FoodAQ@Com
