A study in the Journal of the American Dietetic Association finds that limiting the availability of soft drinks in elementary schools may not significantly affect overall soda consumption by children. The study found that limiting soft drink availability in elementary schools was associated with only a 4 percent reduced likelihood of any consumption in the past week. For those with soft drinks available at school, rates of at school and overall consumption were highest among African-American children, children from low-income households and those who reside in rural areas.
