Alcohol consumption among Dutch 11 and 13-year-olds has decreased substantially in the past five years. Dutch kids are also the happiest in both Europe and North America. This is the conclusion of a major international survey into the health and welfare of children between the age of 11 and 15, the results of which were published on Wednesday. The survey is commissioned by the World Health Organization and conducted every four or five years. A total of 200,000 children took part in the survey.
