Q.

Drinks for 22 month old Toddler

Good morning Dr. I need advise here. My son (almost 2) do not want to drink water or cow milk. He would drink it in very very small amounts only. he would drink a few sips of Rooibos tea but not enough liquid for the day. So out of desperation to get some liquid in that little body, I am giving him Drink o pop or sweeto. It is a artificially sweetened drink with no gas and it does not contain sugar. He drinks is very well, but I don't know if he is allowed to drink this colddrink? is he allowed to drink this at his age?
