    Do you or your kids drink soda on a regular basis?

    If so, how much do you consume each day?

    No and sometimes they hate me for it because all of their friends do. I let them have a sprite once in a while. On their birthdays I let them have the soda of their choice. When we go on vacation they can eat or drink whatever they want. Other than that it's mostly water, some juice, and decaf tea.

      Good for you in spite of their objections! Some day they'll appreciate your giving them a strong start to healthier habits. Thanks for your answer. smile

    No, we do not. We do not consider it healthy so we do not use.

      The habit of soda-drinking can lead to a host of problems including bad teeth, obesity, diabetes, and weak bones.

    I have a Mt. Dew a day, the rest of the day, coffee or sweet tea. My son drinks water or milk.

      Moderation is the key. I think it is good that your son is drinking healthier alternatives as he is growing. Thanks for your response!

    no, i don't even order carbonated drinks when we dine at mcd or kfc. Bad for tummy and teeth. However on special occasion such as christmas or chinese new year, we will drink 1-2 cans only. Furthermore, i always add water to the beverages to dilute them!

      Sounds like a healthy plan.  Sprite or Ginger Ale can be added to pineapple juice, frozen lemonade or limeade, and fruit sherbert for party punch. Also carbonated water like Pelegrino can be added to Pom or cranberry juice for a special treat!

    My kids only have soda on their birthdays.  I don't buy it and we don't order it in restaurants.  My older teens do have their own money.  Even so, they don't buy more than once every two weeks, according to them. I think they are just used to the taste of water, juice or milk.  They often buy juice drinks but rarely buy sodas.

      What a great idea! Saving soda for a special day or event is a perfect way to enjoy it. smile

    My nieces and nephews are allowed to drink soda on the weekends, not during the school week. So are we, adults. This way we can offer the children healthier drinks, like basic water. In my case, if I consume a bottle of soda today, I'd be adding a glass or two of water intake for the day. Probably just my own way of healthy eating, at least.

      That sounds like a good approach. Thanks for your answer. smile
