But then, it all hits him he opens his eyes wide, and smiles like he’s just tasted manna from heaven.

This little boy tries a soda for the first time, not sure what he is getting through the straw, at first he isn’t a fan
The little guy shakes his tiny fists and gives a shout! Clearly tasting the feeling.
While pediatricians say that an occasional sip of soda as a treat is not likely to do long term harm to a baby, Dr. William Sears said on parenting.com that the sugar and caffeine in soda should not be part of a baby’s every day diet.
He says that ‘one of our nutritional goals in parenting should be to ‘shape young tastes’ toward healthy foods and drinks’.
But sometimes, just sometimes, you can’t beat the real thing.
