Soft drinks boost kids’ sugar intake – but may not increase BMI

Soft drinks boost kids’ sugar intake – but may not increase BMI | Nutrition & Health | Scoop.it

17 July 2013, Beverage Daily, Caroline Scott-Thomas -- "British schoolchildren get about 10% of their total energy from soft drinks – but new research suggests high consumption levels do not necessarily lead to higher BMIs."

GR2Food's insight:

This study highlights that many studies have been done on soda consumption and weight gain, especially in the U.S.  However, this study looked at British school children whose consumption of sugary drinks is more likely to be fruit juice and smoothies... these did not promote the same increase in BMI as the U.S. soda based studies.
