Abstract

Introduction: Sugar-sweetened beverages (SSBs) are a key driver of obesity. Portion size regulations typically limit the volume of unsealed SSB containers to 16 fluid ounces. These regulations could reduce SSB consumption, but whom these policies would affect remains unknown. We evaluated demographic groups likely affected by national portion size regulations modeled on policy language and scope from New York City (NYC) and California.
