The cameras around 167 children's necks showed they were exposed to alcohol 78 times at 30 different supermarkets in Wellington.
New Zealand children are being exposed to alcohol nearly every time they go to the supermarket, sparking a call from researchers to have it banned from such stores. 
The over-exposure of alcohol to children put it on par with everyday products such as bread and milk, causing children to drink alcohol earlier in their life, Tim Chambers from Otago University's Department of Public Health said. 

The department's research found that 85 per cent of children were exposed to alcohol in Wellington supermarkets.
