    Mainly water here, the occasional juice/cordial/fizzy but it will be watered down a lot. DS is 9

    No soft drink or supermarket juices ever.
    They can have a freshly squeezed orange juice made at home(they might make one every week for a month, and then not for 6 months, it's not regular).
    I have one child who loves coconut water, that's allowed.
    If we go out for dinner (so rare) they can have a hot chocolate. My parents have bought them iced chocolates before, which I hate them having. I avoid drinks with that awful artificial sugary syrup for them. They get maybe 3 a year, so I haven't banned it as such, but we have talked about how nutritionally bad they are for you so they know it's an extremely occassional thing.
    They like to have a glass of milk at heve maybe 4 times a week for afternoon tea. Sometimes they put a teaspoon of Ovaltine in it.
    Primarily it's water for us though.I'd say their ratio is 95% water...5% a mixture of other drinks. I'm happy with that.

    My 5 yr old drinks water, milk, orange and apple juice occasionally. We only drink the nudie juices if we have juice at home. He hates soft drink so no issues there anyways. He only tried juice at 3 yrs of age.

    My 5.5yo is water.
    He ocassionally has milk, or a chocolate milk or "coffee" (hot chocolate with no sugar)
    He rarely has cordial or juice. Not even fortnightly. He never has any soft drinks. I've said on occasion he's allowed to try them but he's said he doesn't like the bubbles and will just have water.

    My 17.5mo is water, plain milk and breastfed only still.

    Mostly water and milk. If they've been outside jumping in puddles I let them have a hot chocolate to warm up. Sometimes they scab a watered down soft drink, or diluted flavoured milk (my own personal weakness I try to keep hidden ).

    We let DS1 have sparkling mineral water (as in plain water with bubbles in it) if we are having it with our dinner. He thinks it's great. Also if we are out and the kids meal comes with soft drink we get him soda water. It's good to have that option. We don't give him juice, but I do make him smoothies for breakfast in summer, put spinach and kale in with banana and coconut water etc he loves it.

    My 2.5 yo will only drink water and milk. He won't even try anything else. Not such a bad thing as that's pretty much all I drink (plus coffee and wine, lol)

    Mine mainly only drink milk and water, but will drink milo, sometimes watered down juice. And even cordial here and there lol I believe in moderation, there is nothing wrong with some juice or cordial as long as they are mainly drinking water and brushing their teeth. But then my eldest two are much older than many kids of members on BH. Nothing wrong with wanting them healthy, but you can't keep them in the bubble forever
