Breakfast consumers order a soft drink with their breakfast 15.1 percent of the time, compared with 7.9 percent of the time in 1990, said Harry Balzer, an NPD executive vice president who has studied U.S. eating habits for more than 25 years. At the same time, Balzer said, coffee was being ordered 38 percent of the time, compared with 48.7 percent 15 years ago.
The statistics are specific to drinks with meals and do not, for example, address the Starbucks phenomenon.
I personally don't drink much soda, and can't possibly fathom it before noon. If I'm eating breakfast I like to have a glass of fresh squeezed orange juice.
