A can of soda from time to time might not damage however consuming all of it day on daily basis cannot be good for you. My kids know we don’t hold soda in the house and by no means will.

While I feel that older children can and must be able to making their very own selections, I certainly am in favor of banning flavored milk for preschools for the sake of dental health. Or not necessarily ‘banning’ it outright, but not offering it would be best (youngsters can bring their very own flavored milk from residence, however youngsters who buy college lunch at public preschool should not be offered chocolate milk as an possibility – just common milk is okay).

Right now’s kids have many extra beverage options than we did 20-30 years ago. Juice, soda and even Starbucks beverages often end up in the arms of kids 5-18.

Apple juice, soda or water can’t try this!
