    I don't like living in a nanny state.

    A more effective measure would be placing limitations on advertising & promotion - stopping soft drink companies targeting young people by sponsoring music festivals, etc.

    Obesity has overtaken smoking as Australia's leading cause of premature death and illness. It's no longer just an individual issue, it's a public health issue. I think it's a great idea.

    But isn't there a contradiction if there is education to say soft drinks are bad for you and full of sugar and ingredients to rot/disolve your teeth etc but it's ok to sell them to children?

    I think banning it in schools is a good idea but not hospitals. I was told by the ultrasound tech to go drink soft drink so she could get the pictures she needed and I'm sure others have had it for other things.

    Adults should be able to make their own decisions regarding soft drink and children should be educated about it so they can make the right decision too.

    Everything in moderation.

    I think diet is worse. They put fake stuff in it which makes your body crave more sugar.

    So is juice though? So is tomato sauce?

    I mean heck, fruit is full of sugar too.

    Where do you draw the line?

    If school tuck shops aren't selling them - and based on all the responses here then most aren't selling them - then really when else are children likely to buy them without their parents buying it for them?

    Doesn't bother me as my kids aren't allowed it anyway and I don't drink it. Dh has the occasional coke. If it makes people drink less of it then its a good thing.

    I have no issue with them being banned at schools and hospitals. I think it's a great idea.

    We can say that parents should do the right thing and not allow lots of soft drinks, but many parents always they give their children a lot of sugary drinks.

    Also many children have money to spend at school and their parents don't know what they are buying. I rarely let my child have tuckshop for this reason.

    I think the 20% price increase is a bad idea. It won't stop people buying and drinking soft drinks.

    Even worse than sugar IMO.
