Scots pupils fizzing mad

Daily Record - - NEWS -

SCOTS teenagers are the most likely in the UK to choose fizzy drinks at school, ac­cord­ing to a study.

Just over 20 per cent of 13 to 16-year-olds said they would opt to have a fizzy drink, com­pared to the UK av­er­age of 15 per cent.

In Scot­land, 45 per cent said they would pick wa­ter for a school drink, just be­low the UK av­er­age of 48 per cent, ac­cord­ing to Nat­u­ral Hy­dra­tion Coun­cil re­search.

Scots were also found to be twice as likely to take en­ergy drinks than the UK av­er­age (10 to five per cent).
