Impose age limit on pepsi and coke

So children under 15 do not consume it. See attached India is exporting sugar can juice with ginger and lemon to america and here we are drinking coke and pepsi instead and feeing good.

Where are all the so called swadeshi associations?

Children consume this crap at age of 8-9 and it affects brain functioning and causes several other issues like obesity.

Can we launch a movement and have an age of 15 atleast before children in India can consume coke and pepsi and all aerated drinks. more

The suggestion is meaningful but not very practical. Even if there is an age bar, how can the consumption by children be controlled inside the house, especially when the parents themselves take it in presence of their children and moreover take a pride in it, considering it as a status symbol. If the harmful effects of these cold drinks are sufficiently highlighted and the advantages of "limbu sharbat" over coca cola / pepsi are advertised along with the Swadeshi angle, there may be some effect. However the advertisement budgets of these companies are very big and will mostly nullify the effect of "limbu pani" advertisements. more  
Rather than accusing a product, why parents con't prevent their children consuming furious drinks. It is the passion of modern parents to addict their children. more  
Pepsi/ Coke & Desi soft drinks, some have low content of alcohol manufacturers target children for two reasons...1). Parents have soft corner for children and they also taste little amount and appreciate that 2). Habit starts from childhood days like school education. These ways they have made our children soft drinkers and converted elders also and achieved the goal of increased turnover, profit, wealth etc. If any thing happens to the health (obesity, diabetes, BP etc) will be taken care of by medical business groups. An indirect understanding between two groups is established. Final result is , we suffer. Hence above suggestion for age limit in soft drinks is welcome move. more  
We have such good procducts in India . That is why Swadheshi Jagaran Manch was Founded in 1991 during Vajpayis tenure as P.M. The subsequent P.M.'s and Governments should have taken it up as their pet project .

Instead they allow harmful food items , soft drinks and also toys , Electronic goods .


Do you mean the government should impose such a restriction? Our 99.9% children do not take alcoholic drinks though there is no restrictions as far as the government is concerned! Then how it was possible to keep our children away ? Because of our socialistic culture as well as most of our parents keep themselves away from such drinks and resist other family members as well. On the same principle, responsibility forbid any drinks and edibles harmful to health lies with the parents. more
