Water is the Top Adult Daily Beverage Choice, But Not So Much for Kids and Teens, Reports NPD

One of the reasons for the difference between adults and kids is that kids are drinking more milk during their meals. Teenagers in particular are opting for regular (non-diet) carbonated soft drinks in their meals — soft drinks’ share is 14 percent during all teen meals compared to 8 percent for all individuals.
