Housecall for Health: Kids and Sugary Drinks
New research suggests sugary beverages can lead to weight gain in young children.
FOX’s Colleen Cappon reports in this edition of Housecall for Health:
Sugary drinks are starting to affect kids as young as five years old. New research from the University of Virginia shows young children who drink soda, sports drinks, and juices every day are more likely to be obese than those who have them less often. Scientists say even though sugary beverages are a small percentage of the calories children consume, it still contributes to weight gain over time.
