Sugary Beverage Consumption Among California Children and Adolescents.

Abstract

This policy brief examines patterns of sugary beverage consumption among children and adolescents in California. Using data from the California Health Interview Survey (CHIS), this study found that while sugary beverage consumption decreased among adolescents ages 12-17 between 2011-12 and 2013-14, it increased among children under age 12 between 2009 and 2013-14. The trend among children under age 12 may be attributed to a shift in sugary beverage consumption from soda to sports and energy drinks. Establishing and strengthening policies that focus on reducing consumption of sugary beverages could counter the increasing consumption trend among younger children as well as result in further reductions in consumption among teens.
