An alarming number of kids have two or more sugary drinks a day

We all know that soda isn't exactly good for us what with all the calories and added sugar, but it tastes so good! However, a new study may have you questioning if the taste is actually worth it.

The new study suggests 30% of kids in the U.S. consumed more than two sugary drinks per day and two in every three kids drank at least one sugary drink.

While sugary drinks may taste good, the study's author said drinking two or more a day means 10% of your daily calorie intake comes from added sugar, which is linked to diabetes and high cholesterol.

The study, released by the National Center for Health Statistics, looked at data from the CDC during the years 2011-2014.

While 30% of kids drinking two sugary drinks a day may seem high, the CDC says that number is actually down from 60% in 2010.

In 2010 children took in 155 calories from sugary drinks daily. This recent study shows they took in 143 calories a day. The American Heart Association says the goal is 100.

It's notoriously difficult to get kids to eat healthy, so maybe keep the pizza but pair it with a tall glass of milk!
