Chil­dren’s drinks re­main in the fir­ing line, not only for sugar con­tent but also for serv­ing size. A study of 656 bev­er­ages by the Wa­iariki In­sti­tute of Tech­nol­ogy in Rotorua found al­most half ex­ceed the 240ml rec­om­mended serv­ing size. And sugar con­tent re­mains high, with fizzy drinks and juices con­tain­ing the most (more than 85 per cent of their to­tal en­ergy). The re­searchers are call­ing for stricter reg­u­la­tions around the avail­abil­ity of sug­ary drinks to chil­dren.
