Water fountains needed for children

20th July 2009

The Children's Food Campaign (CFC) has said too few parks have water fountains available for children to drink from.

The CFC said children were more likely to buy a high-calorie fizzy drink if water was not provided. The CFC said: "Children often have to go thirsty or visit ice cream vans, shops or takeaways where there may be few healthy options available and lots of tempting but unhealthy drinks and snacks on offer."
