Soft drinks will be banned from some Australian schools from the first term next year to combat childhood obesity.

The move to ban soft drinks in New South Wales comes after the release of the Schools Activity and Nutrition Report. The report found that although children are more active today than in 1997, the incidence of obesity is rising by 1% a year.

According to the Australian Broadcasting Corporation yesterday (24 May), the ban will cover carbonated soft drinks, energy drinks, flavoured mineral waters and sports drinks.

The move comes after the New Zealand government said earlier this month that it wanted to ban the sale of CSDs in the country faster than has been planned in the US.
