A group of scientists say that children should drink water instead of sugary drinks at mealtimes.
A study has shown that children and teenagers are consuming more added sugar than the recommended daily allowance.
The main reason for this  is the rise in people drinking  fruit juices and fizzy drinks.
Scientists say the best way to cut down on this is to replace sugary drinks with water and they want families and schools to make it the only option at mealtimes.

  1. I very rarely have a energy drink when having dinner, only when friends come round for a sleep over.

  2. i think that it is quite important to drink water at dinner because you would of had lollies and sweets earlier in the day

  3. i agree Margot it is very impotent to drink water and does not dehydrate us. You do not want to experience dehydration!

  4. I agree with the scientists because water keeps you healthy and that it is what keeps you alive.

  5. i think you should drink water all the time because your body is made up of 60% water

  6. I agree that we should drink water instead of fizzy drinks because water is good for your body.

  7. wow did not know how important water was but i don’t even drink fizzy drinks or energy drinks at dinnertime anyway…..

  8. i think drinking water is a really really good thing to do
    the video told me more about it

  9. wow thanks i didn’t know we are 60 per cent water and i should always drink water because its good or if i get bored i could eat fruit such as apples oranges and much much more and i pretty sure that your sposed to drink around 7 liters of water a day and you should drink lots of water because waters very important

  10. I think your text is true but i still think you still can drink fizzy drinks but not to much, like once a month. I think you should add how much liters to you need to drink per day. I agree adding fruit might make children want to drink water a bit more.

  11. did not know water was so important but i do not drink fizzy drinks anyway (i agree with the scientists)
