Leak resistant drinking cup

A leak resistant drinking cup has a diaphragm seal for normally closing an open top of a liquid container of the cup. The seal can be opened to permit liquid to flow past it and out of the cup upon application of a vacuum pressure by the person, typically a small child, drinking from the cup. The diaphragm seal has a peripheral edge margin that can be deflected upward by the vacuum pressure to open a path out of the drinking cup. A hold down rib may be employed to control the locations where the peripheral edge margin is permitted to deflect.
