Sweet Drinks Tied to Higher
Calorie Consumption in Kids

HealthDay News, March 12, 2013: Children who drink sugar-sweetened beverages consume more calories than other children and the beverages are the main reason for that higher calorie intake, a new study reveals.

In addition, children who drink sugar-sweetened beverages eat more unhealthy foods than other children, the researchers found.

Evidence shows that consumption of sugar-sweetened beverages — which include sodas, fruit drinks, sports and energy drinks — has risen in the past 20 years.

Further analysis revealed that sugar-sweetened beverages were the primary cause of the increased calorie intake seen among children aged 2 to 11. Both food and sugar-sweetened beverages contributed to increased calorie intake among children aged 12 to 18.

This is concerning because many foods that are associated with higher sugar-sweetened beverage consumption (e.g., pizza, cakes/cookies/pies, fried potatoes, and sweets) are also top sources of solid fats and added sugars; components of the diet that the 2010 Dietary Guidelines recommends Americans should limit.
