    We use it for 'special' sparkling water. So good for a hot day.

    Bit weird. I could understand if you had issues getting your toddler to drink water like we do. My now 2 year old has always refused to drink plain water so we give him diluted cordial or diluted fresh juice, but he does love sparkling water so if we are out I always buy it for myself and he can have some as a treat. I certainly wouldn't give any other fizzy drinks with sugar but maybe you could use it just for fizzy water as a treat here and there?

    Are there sugar-free flavouring syrups available, just out of interest? My kids (5 & 2) rarely gravitate toward soft-drinks at parties, etc. I was just thinking that if it were me, I would probably use it if sugar-free flavouring was available...I spend a fortune on Diet-Coke!!

    Yes there is. I actually use it to water down juice. Fizzy apple juice is the best.

    My toddler adores plain soda water, really odd gift but it would suit us. Id have to specifically request it as it is so odd!

    I would stay clear of sugar free syrups as well, I can only imagine the additives and artificial sweeteners they would use and definitely would not be suitable for a child - DS loves mineral or soda water so like pp,s have said maybe you could use it just for that?

    Odd gift, but they're great for just making fizzy water.

    You're actually better off having sugar than sugar free! Sugar free is just rubbish put together.
