TRUTH !!
The plan was the brainchild of a Belgian beer society, the Limburg Beer
Friends. The club’s president, Rony Langenaeken, came up with the idea after
hearing about a Belgian study linking childhood consumption of sugary drinks
to obesity and breast cancer. At the time, Langenaeken told reporters, “It's
good for their figure and very healthy as well.”

The program was aimed at kids from ages 3 to 15. While some adults expressed
concern at the idea of 5-year-olds chugging cold ones at lunch, Langenaeken
tried to assure skeptics that kids wouldn't actually get drunk off such
small portions. “Beer is for the whole family," he said. “I used to drink it
when I was just six years old.”

The Lagere Gemengde School in Hasselt decided to give the plan a test-run,
and it certainly went over well with students. According to a 2001 story in
the Akron Beacon Journal, 75% of the
pupils surveyed preferred the new brews to other soft drinks.

While kids were psyched about the suds, parents had a harder time swallowing
the idea. “The word ‘alcohol’ was and is still a difficult notion,” said
Langenaeken. Some adults were concerned the brews would affect children’s
concentration in the classroom, making them rowdy or sleepy. Unfortunately
for all the eight-year-old Belgian beer enthusiasts, no other schools agreed
to test the program, and the idea never caught on.
