Reducing racial-ethnic disparities in sugar-sweetened beverage intake: the impact of nutrition claims on fruit drink purchases among parents of young children

Project Summary

This project will inform policies to reduce sugar-sweetened beverage (SSB) intake among children ages 1-5 years, with a long-term goal of reducing racial-ethnic disparities in childhood obesity. Fruit-flavored drinks (i.e., 'fruit drinks') are the top SSB consumed by young children, with heaviest consumption occurring among Black and Latino children, who also have the highest prevalence of childhood obesity.
