Q. What’s the single most important thing we can do to reduce childhood obesity?

A. Stop drinking soda. Or at least return soda to its place as a special-occasion drink. There are too many children in America who are drinking soda all day long and are consuming 1,000 calories a day in the form of liquid candy. If they only had soda once a week, I think it would do a lot to prevent or cure childhood obesity.
