British teens drink a ‘bathtub’ of sugary drinks a year
BRITISH teenagers drink almost a bathtub full of sugary drinks each year, Cancer Research UK said as the charity urged the government to do more to improve children’s diets.
Children aged 11 to 18 consume on average 234 cans of sugar-sweetened soft drinks each year, CRUK said.
This is almost a bathtub-full and is more than double the figure for children aged between four and 10, whose average annual intake is 110 cans. The data stems from a recent report charting the population’s diet and nutrition. –
