GRAND JUNCTION, Colo. (KKCO) - Young children who drink soda may act aggressively towards their peers.
A new study in teh journal of pediatrics analyze3d survey responses filled out by the mothers of 3,000 five-year-olds. They found nearly half of the children had at least one soft drink per day - and 4% had four drinks or more.
They found a child's aggressive behaviour score increased with each increased in soft drink servings. The kids who had four or more drinks were two times more likely to destroy other kids' toys, get into fights, and physically attack people.
