    Honestly, yes I would, although I definitely wouldn't be making any comments. I also think that a sip on rare occasions is a very different story to being given a proper sized drink in a sippy cup etc

    I knew a girl whose 5 year old daughter couldn't get out of bed until her mother made her a cup of coffee and she drank some to get her kick started.....!

    They're totally different IMO. I'm opposed to children having coke due to the caffeine and the artificial ingredients. Juice has neither of those.

    However yes I agree that babies shouldn't be having juice.

    I have always watered juice down 50/50 and mine never had it until about 1 or older. But fructose is no where as bad as processed and refined sugar. Yes it can still rot teeth (thus why I still dilute) but there is plenty of goodness in juice, especially the 100% orange/apple ones I buy. There is no goodness in coke.

    I think feeding juice to a young child is just as bad.

    I feel the same, after seeing a grade prep rock up to her first day with no front teeth from drinking juice, broke my heart for the poor kid.

    I do know lots of people who do the watered down thing which we have done, when DS went under a general anaesthetic recently we gave him that during his fast.

    But undiluted as a regular drink, nope.

    Coke is worse than juice. At least juice has some nutritional value and is not caffeinated.

    Having said that, my 2.5 year old has still never had juice or soft drink. He's happy with water, so I'm in no hurry to introduce sweet drinks.

    I do judge for coke in bottles. I have given my 14 month old DD freshly squeezed juice though on a few occasions

    I didn't want to give my son juice but when he was 2.5 the doctor told me to as he was constipated. It was watered down but since he got a taste for it he asks all the time He now gets it as a treat occasionally but still no soft drink or cordial.

    My brother had a root canal at 6 yrs old from too much juice and cordial so yes I judge people that let their kids have sugary drinks all the time.

    I'm another with a child who has Type 1 Diabetes. I'm begging parents not to judge other parents if they don't know the situation. I have never had to give my son coke, but a close friend's son was having a terrible hypo and nothing was working, so they were required to give him coke and it worked.

    I have been judged for giving my son lollies etc to treat hypos and we once had to give him sugar sachets. Please don't judge! It's the difference between him living or being in a coma, or at the very worst, dead.
