In this episode, we talk about children, soda, and obesity. Soda addiction has long been a problem in our nation’s schools here in America.

It was never a problem in my school where I grew up in New Zealand. There was no such thing as a vending machine. We didn’t have access to soft drinks.

But it seems like it’s a growing problem in America. Every day for years, children have lined up at vending machines to buy their 20-ounce bottles of sugar and carbonated water before they go off to study.

They study important subjects like history, math, and, yes, nutrition. Kids love soda, but they aren’t the only ones who are hooked. Parents are hooked. It seems soda is cheaper than water.
