  • Health & Wellbeing for Teenage Boys 16.05.2017

A recent report from Australia claimed some teenage boys drink up to 50 litres of soft drinks in a year with boys being far more likely to visit the vending machine than their female counterparts for their fizzy fixes as well as for junk food in general. Statistics show that boys are also at an increasing risk of anorexia and depression during their teenage years.
