Scottish Health Official: Disney Driving Kids to Drink

Could the folks at Disney be hatching a plan to get kids hooked of Champagne? A Scottish health official believes so and has asked the company to stop marketing a sparkling fruit juice.

Alcohol Focus Scotland Executive Jack Law says Disney Partyfizz, a non-alcoholic juice drink, too closely resembles Champagne. Laws says Scotland has a major adolescent drinking problem and the gold foil-wrapped packaging is teaching kids that drinking is acceptable.

Disney has not issued a statement on the matter.
