(KCEN) -- Parents listen up. The more salty foods your kids eat, the more sugary drinks they'll use to wash them down.
This new information comes from a study that tracked the eating habits of more than 4,000 kids in Australia.
Researchers discovered a diet high in salt led to kids drinking more sodas and other sugar-sweetened beverages.
The kids who had more than one of those drinks each day were more than 25 percent more likely to be overweight.
