A new study about beverage consumption by children and adults reveals that at all ages, water is the beverage consumed by the highest percentage of people and in the greatest quantities.

A Statistics Canada report released last week that after water, the beverage choices Canadians make are tied closely to their age. As they get older, boys and girls drink less milk and fruit juice, and more soft drinks and fruit-flavoured drinks containing less than 100% juice.

The release is based on two articles in Health Reports that use data from the 2004 Canadian Community Health Survey on nutrition, the first national nutrition survey in over 30 years.
