    No they should be allowed none.
    I honestly think kids should not drink soda, and responsible parents should not let their kids drink soda. Maybe by age 12 on /very/ special occasions, but not otherwise. Definitely not younger.

    for the first 10 yrs of my life I didnot know there was such a thing as a package of soda....my father did all grocery shopping , he never went down that aisle........when we went out and when I asked for one h
    'he picked up ONE NICKEL BOTTLE OF COKE" and bought it....in the summer he came home with a bottle of ORANGE SODA OR A BOTTLE OF "FROSTY ROOT BEER AND A HALF PINT OF VANILLA ICE CREAM OR ORANGE SHERBERT......THAT WAS IT.....I never knew there was such a thing as a multi pack anywhere...

    whenever i see a child drinking soda in public, i smack the bottle out of their hands and spit on the parents. Otherwise they will never learn.

    They should be allowed :
    As much as they like, not just on sepcial occasions. I was practically raised on Colas, and orangeades etc. and i'm fine. maybe a little underweight, but that's about it.

    OK...I'm talking about my OWN kids, not everyone else's. I wish I had been more of a fascist where sodas are concerned. My daughter drank them like crazy, and the acid in them has pretty much destroyed the enamel on her teeth. I didn't have to worry about my son because he loved milk. Letting my kid guzzle sodas has turned into a very expensive lesson.

    Contrary to popular belief, 99% of the things we consume are absolutely OKAY for a person, as long as they are consumed in moderation. Most people do not understand what "moderation" means, and that's a problem. Too much of anything can kill you. Too much water can kill you, even. I'm not going to deprive my child of soda. I will let them drink it moderately, and sure, it will not be much until they are older, but I'm not going to cut them off from it completely.

    Sure kids should be allowed to have a soft drink once in awhile. It's a lot better than letiing them get stoned all the time

    Sure, I will split a pepsi with my grandson occasionally!

    I never kept it in the house; it was for special occasions only. Then my son was allowed to have as much as he wanted.
  • LQ~phaet 2012/05/10 19:12:19
    They should be allowed :
    however much they can afford.

    This will keep consumption way down, especially in the first 10 years. :)

    They should be allowed :
    As much as they wont.

    For the first 14 years of my life I drank practically nothing but Coke and Milk - Mostly Coke - and aside from the mental trauma instilled by my parents, I turned out fine.

    Contrary to popular belief, it's actually quite good for you.
  • Cuppajo 2012/05/10 19:10:53
    Yes they should be allowed on special occasions
    And in moderate amounts.
  • AmericanVirus 2012/05/10 19:08:36
    They should be allowed :
    A reasonable amount. I have been drinking pop like it was water since I was little, I'm perfectly healthy and my teeth are great.
