Two-year-olds who consumed sugary drinks regularly were more likely to have a higher body mass index over the next two years, and had a greater likelihood of being obese at age 5 than peers who did not drink these beverages, a study in the journal Pediatrics showed. Researchers tracked 9,600 children from birth to 5 years of age and found that about 9.3% of them were consuming at least one sugary drink a day at age 2.
