These are the reasons why busy body should keep their big fat traps closed.
Seriously don't these mums have enough to deal with with their kids invisible disease with a upstart idiot coming over and giving them a hard time. You can't tell by looking at these kids that have a special need. The hurt ache and tears that mum like these have have endured over every little things their kids eat and drink is unbearable. The worry you have when you kids will only eat a few foods is massive. I am not talking about a fussy eater here either, I am talking about kids with real medical problems.
So next time you see a mum giving a child something that you personal wouldn't maybe take a second to think about kids with special needs and smile and move on.

I have to say....I originally answered yes but I'm going to own up to the fact that I was a bit naive when I first answered. After reading through all posts I honestly had no idea about some of the reasons why a child may be seen drinking coke. So thank you to those ladies who shared their personal stories because it really has opened my eyes to the fact that I have absolutely NO idea what is going on beyond the glimpse of their lives that I see.
So I do apologise to those ladies because I can't even imagine what some of you are going through with your children. I also want thank you again for sharing.....thanks to you I'm going to think twice when I see parents making certain food/drink choices because some of the time there is a bigger picture and who am I to judge on the brief moment I am there for.
Hugs to you ladies, you're doing an amazing job
ETA: I also just wanted to say that in my first post when I said yes I would judge I would never ever have said anything out loud to the parent. I know that doesn't make the fact that I used to judge any better but I did understand it was none of my business. That it would be awful and embarresing (for the other parent) for me as a complete stranger to comment about somebody elses parenting choice. It would only ever be a thought to myself and not something I would dwell on.

I don't mind a little juice or lemonade (or a fire engine, gosh I loved those as a kid lol), in moderation. I wasn't allowed caffeinated drinks until I was a teenager and its a good policy I think.

I used to. I dont like DS who is 6 having coke but in the end, if others give their kids coke, thats their business. I have got to the stage where i honestly couldnt care what most parents do as i have my own child and the days are too short for me to be worried about anything that doesnt concern me.

Again, I ask, how does everyone have the time to see what other parents are doing?? Don't you have your own kids to keep an eye on?
Mind your own damn business!

That said I only really "judge" neglect, abuse, and child endangerment. Other things I might find a bit odd but I don't waste my time judging other parents
