One of the best things about babies is watching them experience the world for the first time. Everything is new to them and their curiosity is endless. While babies have been exploring the world around them ever since humans walked this earth, now that every parent has a HD camera in their pocket, videos of these babies’ reactions are being shared online. And many of them are hilarious. I remember seeing one baby’s disgusted reaction to avocado. But when it comes to baby firsts, the one of this child drinking Coca Cola from a straw at McDonald’s has to be one of the best. Her over-the-top reaction sums up the soft drink perfectly. You’ve got to see how this baby responds.
Although no self-respecting health expert or nutritionist would ever recommend giving soda to a young child, the video below of little Evie is the perfect response to what the drink is like.
Because Coke has a strange taste, that takes a bit to get used to, it remains one of the most popular soft drinks in the world if not these most popular.
In the hilarious video below, you’ll see little Evie sipping Coke from a McDonald’s soft drink cup for the first time. Her reaction is priceless.
The child’s face scrunches up like she just tasted the juice from a thousand lemons. Then her head recoils backward like she has an electric shock running through her body. It’s a combination of shock, disgust, love, and newness.
Her tiny brain struggles to process the complicated taste in her mouth. The fizziness and the sweetness overwhelm her.
Evie tosses her head back to get farther away from the drink. But when she pulls her head forward again after the shock of the first sip subsides, her eyes gleam – like she is high. Maybe it’s the excessive amounts of sugar or caffeine, but the drink has already converted Evie despite her harsh first impression.
Then she takes another tiny sip from the straw. Her parents have not commented, but it unlikely that she fell asleep that night.
Dr. William Sears told parenting.com that a sip or two of soda won’t harm a child’s long-term health, but soda has clear harmful biochemical effects, leading to obesity and worse.
“Caffeine causes a buzz to children’s brains at a time in their development when many are already dubbed ‘hyperactive.’ The high the child gets from a jolt of caffeine is often followed by a low with consequent mood swings the rest of the day. Soda has too much sugar. An average 12-ounce can of soda contains around ten teaspoons of sugar! This sugar isn’t partnered with any nutrients to slow down the absorption of sugar — protein, fiber, or fat. So the sugar enters the bloodstream too fast, causing a roller coaster effect with ups and downs of behavior.”
