    I've seen people including a cousin give their babies chocolate milk and coke in a bottle. I've also seen a mother buy a monster energy drink, crack it then hand it to her 4/5 year old.

    Two dieticians have also told me that they would rather see kids drink flavored milk over juice as its not as bad for their teeth and whilst it does have a high sugar content (like the juice), it at least has other good bits to it, ie fat and calcium.

    Just thought I'd put it out there as there are often other reasons why parents make the choices they do (although I'd be surprised if there is a good reason for soft drink )
    I get looks from people when they assume my DD is drinking regular chocolate milk in her bottle. It's actually rice milk with a half teaspoon of chocolate nesquik. She can't drink any other milk (allergies) and rice milk she hates the taste of plain..

    Wow at the energy drink thing. I thought coke was bad enough but that one just boggles the mind. I thought there was research into how dangerous they can be for teens let alone babies and toddlers.

    I've got no problem with the occasional juice, soft drink or flavoured milk. DS have even had powerade a few times (without being sick but that's only happened in the last year or so). I don't let him have coke, even at 9 I think it's too young to handle the caffine. DS's best friend drinks coke like water and so do his siblings, including the 2 year old. So when DS stays the night I send him with a can of lemonade so he doesn't feel so left out but it has come home with him before because all he has wanted was milk or water.

    The one that I don't get is the artificially sweetened drinks. They're a big no no in my eyes but I suppose some people think they're doing the right thing by not giving their kids sugar.

    I was in coffs harbour on holiday and saw parents fill a babies bottle with coke and hand it to him while he was sitting in the high chair in the food court of the shopping centre. I was shocked, I thought that was just an urban myth . Baby looked to be 8-10 mths old. My step daughters useless mother used to fill baby bottles with green/red cordial/ red lemonade and strawberry milk when she was just 2-3 years old. Useless would then get upset at DH and I when we would only offer her plain milk or water.

    I think it looks off when it's in a baby bottle, with a teat. I wouldn't even look twice if I saw a 2-3 year old with a juice box or flavoured milk in a carton, as its a stranger I have no idea how often they have it. Coke I would though and an energy drink, that is just so bad!
