    I get the sugar thing and know the difference, what I don't agree with is the high level of caffeine or 150dAttachment 63062

    Thank you! That's the tread I was meaning.

    So, like I said, without knowing the facts we CAN NOT JUDGE.

    Please explain why a soft drink filled with caffeine is suitable over another sugar drink?

    No I don't carry coke for my type 1 diabetic daughter but if jellybeans don't work to treat a low then our last resort is a small amount of coke (which usually works) before we have to pull out a nasty orange needle. So yes coke can be a whole lot better then the likes of juice, lemonade, sports drinks etc.

    For a start the caffeine in the coke helps distribute the sugar faster caffeine its great for a LOT of medications/problems and helping them work faster and better.

    There may well be a reason...

    ... but I would have been horrified too!

    I do often make judgments internally and I think everyone does but I don't say anything. It would take something really extreme for me to even give a dirty look. I was super snobbish of parenting techniques before I actually became one though and learned how hard it is!

    Far out I absolutely hate threads like this. So much disgusting judgement when you see a tiny snippet into someones life.

    Is coke the best choice? No of course not. Are there parents out there who make bad choices? Of frigging course there is. Sitting here on a computer judging them only serves to make yourself feel better, not actually do anything about what you view as a problem.

    I'm just wanting to be educated. I don't see any need to give coke. If there is a medical condition then surely there would be alternatives
