    Do you allow young kids to drink pepsi and coke?

    I don't allow my kids to drink coke or pepsi as I believe they're harmful for their nervous system. Do you think I'm wrong?

    I would not allow adults to drink those substances either...

    Not only do I not allow my kids to drink them, I do not drink them. In fact, my daughter and I rarely drink any soda. Milk, Juice and Water our the choices in our house. I just wish I could convince the wife of the same thing and get her to stop drinking Mountain Dew Code Red.

    Soda (or pop) have almost no nutritional value of any kind, and many of them have ingredients that actually make a person even more thirsty than they were, forcing them to drink more. The same argument could be made about sports drinks.

    I think you are right.  We preach and preach about no drug use and yet we - the adults - are swilling caffeine big time.  So no, we did not let our kids have any drinks with caffeine or too much sugar.  Why train their bodies to crave those things?

    I had a friend who used to work in a restaurant as a manager. I was drinking 7up and he told me its very bad. I didn't know it was toxic until then. Apparently, according to him it's poison the super-heavy amounts of sugar were destroying my pancreas easily.

    So, Me and my best friend put those soft drinks to test OK. Put one big nail in a glass of coke, leave it there for two days. Put it away, go do stuff. Come back and you will find it totally rusted out. It's really been tried no joke.

    From what I learned in that restaurant 7up, pepsi and coke cost nothing to the business. Not even 1 cents a glass, but, they make the most profit out of it because its so addictive and once you drink some you want some more. It's really important to follow a strict diet with natural sugars. If you want to grow taller OK and not suffer from diabetes at age 30.

    Actually my friend was so worried about my health, he didn't want me to drink another glass of that junk. Sometimes, it really tempting especially if your a big coffee lover.

    Its your decision as they are your children.  I only let my little one have this type of drink on special occasions and from she was little have mostly given her water to drink, it worked, she drinks alot of water which is good for her.

    Yes, a little sip is ok. Even for young and old consumer there is a bad effect. Just that sometimes it is minimal. In anyway too much is bad. So even for a softdrink we should drink in moderate.

    My older daughter never liked soda, so it was a non-issue.  MY twins drink Sprite maybe two or three times a year as a treat during the holidays.  They do not need the caffine or the empty, sugar calories.  They are active naturally!
