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.
