    Yes to be honest I would judge, but wouldn't ever say anything. Same thing as seeing someone pour ice break into an infants bottle...

    Nope mainly because I don't notice, I judge my own children for stealing sips of mine when I have it and am not looking 😒

    Wow, what an eye opener. Some really nasty responses here. Sure, it's not good for kids to have softdrink or any junk food often, but if it's some random person in the street, how do you know how often they have it? If I get a coke when out shopping and give my daughter a sip, how is that a bad thing? How do you know if it's a daily, weekly or monthly treat? I might be a little more laid back though.

    There's such a huge difference between thinking to yourself "oh I wouldn't be giving my child coke at that age" and actually thinking you have some sort of right or obligation to actually question a parent doing so.

    I would judge like hell if someone gave my child coke. Emergency vehicles keep it on them to clean blood off the roads after car accidents so it scares me a bit. It causes stomach ulcers and worse. That being said, I was sadly addicted to the stuff and even though I haven't had any since my first pregnancy, even now I kinda miss it. But DD is not having it till she is in highschool. Lol, if I can help it.

    That's all a myth

    Not a myth actually. I was a member of the rural fire service and saw the coke in the SES trucks for that purpose. So maybe not all but some do use it.
