The Lithuanian parliament, Seimas, passed a ban on selling toys, beverages and other products marketed to kids and teenagers that imitate alcohol and alcohol packaging. Fifty-three members of parliament voted in favour of amending the Law on Alcohol Control on Thursday, seven were against.

The law forbids selling or producing such products in Lithuania.

Authors of the bill say that fizzy soft drinks in brightly coloured champagne-shaped bottles – sometimes marketed as ‘kids champagne’ – or non-alcoholic punch encourages the habit of alcohol consumption among teenagers and higher tolerance for underage drinking among adults.
