US trade body the American Beverage Association spent just under US$685,000 on lobbying in the US last year, according to a recent filing.

An online posting from the US Senate's public records office earlier this month showed that the ABA spent the money lobbying on issues including childhood nutrition. The ABA spent about $487,000 in the second half of last year, with $198,000 being spent in the first six months of 2007.

Under a federal law enacted in the US 1995, lobbyists are required to disclose activities that could influence members of the executive and legislative branches. They must register with Congress within 45 days of being hired or engaging in lobbying.

Based in Washington, the ABA represents non-alcoholic beverage producers, including Nestle Waters North America, Cott Beverages and Pepsi-Cola North America.
