Sugar sweetened drinks - Year 6 students

  • The proportion of year 6 children drinking soft drink 4 or more times a week has decreased over time. The increase seen in 2015 compared to 2012 can be partially explained by more complete data collection.  
  • More year 6 boys report drinking soft drink regularly than year 6 girls 
  • The types of sugary drinks reported by students in 2015 indicate soft drink was the most popular followed by flavoured water, sports drink, diet soft drink and energy drink.
