It's official: The % of American kids drinking soda is going DOWN...
The percentage of American children drinking carbonated soft drinks has declined noticeably across all age groups since 2006, according to data unveiled by Dr Erin Quann, director of regulatory affairs at the Dairy Research Institute at one myth-busting education session.
Data from the National Health and Nutrition Examination Surveys (NHANES) from 1976 through 2010 for children and adolescents showed that the percentage of kids drinking soda fell from 55% of kids aged 6-12 in 2001-2006 to 45% in 2007-2010, she revealed.
And the drop was even sharper for teens, with the percentage of soda drinkers falling from 67% of 13-17 year olds in 2001-2006 to just 53% in 2007-2010.
