Children drinking too much juice, soda

From NBC12 News

New research indicates children are drinking too much juice and soda, and not enough milk.
 
Researchers at Columbia University found children between the ages of two and 19 are getting up to 15-percent of their calories from juice and sugar-sweetened beverages. 

Child over age seven are drinking nearly 24 ounces of juice a day. 

That's double the maximum 12 ounces recommended by pediatricians.
