I love juice and i used to be addicted to soda. Now that I am older and i know the effect of it on your teeth I try not to have it at all. My neices and nephews under 5 are not allowed to have it. I feel like thir teeth are still developing. I try t give them only fruit juices. I know they have sugar in it but i feel its better then soda. do you give soda to your toddlers?

My two year old has had soda on two occasions, when he was sick and constipated and once with his daddy (who loves to spoil him). I don't want to say that he wont recieve it until he's older than five, because I have already broken so many of those "my kid will never..." rules that I made pre-kids, but it will never be a staple in thier diets. (or so I say now eh?)
