The findings from UCLA's Center for Health Policy Research showed that 19 percent of all 2- to-5-year-olds drank at least one sugar-sweetened beverage a day in 2011-2012, a 30 percent drop compared with seven years ago. Among 6-to-11-year-olds, the drop was 26 percent. The downturn is likely linked to soda bans at schools, public health campaigns about the dangers of sugary drinks and growing awareness of the health risks. (Photo by Spencer Platt/Getty Images)
