    So hell yes I judge. I think it's poor form giving that stuff to kids and whenever I see it happening, I walk over and I say something.

    I know. A tad confrontational. But I don't care. Coke harms children.
    So what would you actually do slash say? I'm amused and curious

    Speaking of teeth. Considering their love of coke, do the parents where you work have teeth of their own ? How about their kids?

    A lot of parents have missing teeth. Some don't.

    I had a girl in my class last year who had already had about 8 teeth pulled. All baby ones thankfully.

    I do actually remember when I was a kid when we we're really sick from a bug and hadn't been able to eat in a few days the Dr told my mum to give us a small glass of flat coke because it has lots of sugar in it and i remember it did make you feel better. One of my ivf nurses used to prescribe coke to help nausea of one of the drugs and it does work.

    I'd never give my little fella coke, and i do judge when i see children in prams sipping on a macca's drink through a straw but it's an each to their own thing.

    Just as an aside, teeth issues arent always caused by poor food and drink choices etc. My middle son has 3 chips out of his front teeth and some yellow marks, caused by large amounts of antibiotics in his first 2.5 years marking and making his teeth weak. Im sure people assume I feed him copious amounts of sugar, soda etc which isnt the case. Ive certainly been judged because of it in the past.

    I just LOVE when people who have limited experience or knowledge of diabetes like to add their two cents about treating hypoglycaemia. Honestly, nothing annoys me more. Type 1 Diabetes does not play by rules, it does not act nicely, it's erratic and its behaviour hardly ever makes sense. I have been forced to pin my son down, who was shaking uncontrollably, and squirt glucose gel down the back of his throat because nothing else would bring his blood glucose up. Not glucodin, not lollies, not juice, nothing. Even the gel didn't work on that occasion.

    Please don't admonish hypo treatments unless you live with this insidious disease every single day. Even then, what works for one person does not work for the rest, and vice versa. Type 1 Diabetes is a nasty disease. I am more than happy to provide more info if you would like to become further informed.

    I don't judge . My kids have coke sometimes . Well not really my daughter much i am abit stricter on her diet , but my son yes . And really to be honest they see it and don't really care or desperately want it , they are abit meh whatever . Because its never been off limits . They have been allowed sips or a small watered down cup so it's not this out of reach drink they are dying to try.

    That said I couldn't give a flying F**k what anyone thinks of that and this is probably the rudest thing I've wrote on bubhub but you want to know why I'm so passionate about it , My son has such severe food issues relating to his autism that his diet consists of nothing but 2 foods and one drink that must be the exact colour. Two foods is an achievement, it was solely ONE food for a year . And that's on a good day when he actually IS eating and drinking . So frankly my views on this have dramatically changed . If he wants a drink of my coke ill give him a drink of it with pleasure. The fact he is drinking something of a different colour or even drinking from a cup is a huge thing when he does it . And I've seen people stare and look, I can almost read the judgment pouring out of their eyes and I think you really have no idea of my situation so judge away .

    But even if he didn't have special needs I would still feel the same about my kids being allowed it in moderation .

    Can't believe that only a couple of people in this thread wouldn't judge !!??? I seriously must live on a different planet because I don't know any parents in real life like this bar a few . All the kids in our extended family eat well, are healthy, loved , active children and they are allowed treats including coke as a treat sometimes if they want it. The parents don't blink an eye it's just known , " ok only a little bit, ok that's enough , water now the rest of the night " no big deal . I honestly must come from one of those feral bogan families always talked about on here .

    And there is no denying cokes a horrid drink . I'm utterly addicted to the stuff but I don't deny it's got not one iota of goodness in it . Just like alot of other treats that children have sometimes. That's why MODERATION is the crucial thing regarding diet .

    As far as I'm aware, the issue is caffeine not sugar, so I truly dont get the parents comparing the consumption of coke to cordial.

    my children have been told no caffeine till 10 at least.

    can I ask are you more worried about the sugar or the caffeine? I'm more worried about the caffeine

    I get parents saying I drink a bit of coke so why should it be a problem...?

    But I wonder if adults think about the fact that their children do no have fully formed brains etc which caffeine will have a bigger impact upon?
