According to researchers at Penn State University in the US, kids and young adults who drink no water throughout the day may consume twice the amount of calories from sugary drinks than those who drink water.

The researchers highlight that the sugar-sweetened beverages include soda, sweetened fruit juices, sports drinks, energy drinks, and sweetened tea and coffee drinks. They do not include 100-percent-fruit juices, drinks sweetened with zero-calorie sweeteners, or drinks that are sweetened by the consumer, like coffee or tea brewed at home.

While other research has shown an overall decline in the consumption of sugar-sweetened beverages, there are still subpopulations of kids in the U.S. who are more likely to consume sugary drinks. The research team plans to better understand how many kids drink water on a given day, how many do not, and how their caloric intake from sugar-sweetened beverages differ.
