Drinks are a vital constituent of the diet and are widely available in a number of varieties in today’s supermarkets. However, the Caroline Walker Trust (CWT) (2005) identifies solely milk and water should be drunk between meals. This is to reduce the consequences, such as tooth decay, of the frequent consumption of juices and fizzy drinks (Food Standards Agency, (FSA) 2009). A small web based research project was undertaken aimed to explore the nutritional value of children’s drinks and how they fit with the Dietary Reference Values (DRVs), whilst taking the cost into consideration.
