My five year old son Will has learned to be very creative in order to avoid trying new foods and beverages which frequently result in him gagging and vomiting. We were having dinner with my mother one night and she poured herself a cup of 7 Up from a can. Will was watching her and glancing at me while waiting for the question he has come to expect when there is something new or different at the table. His granny then asked him the dreaded question while she held up the can, "Will would you like to try some, it is really good?" He grinned and replied, "No thank you I'm not old enough. The label says for ages 7 and up. It must have too much caffeine."
