One in Three Young Children in California Consumed One or More Sugary Beverages a Day in 2013-14

April 12, 2018

Fact Sheet

Authors: Susan H. Babey, Ph.D., Joelle Wolstein, PhD, MPP, MA

​Of California children ages 2-11, nearly one in three (31 percent) consumed one or more sugary beverages per day in 2013-14. This percentage is higher than the percentages of children who consumed sugary beverages every day in 2009 or in 2011-12. The trend suggests that reductions in sugary beverage consumption observed among children in recent years may be reversing. Authors say continued education and policy efforts are needed to reduce sugary beverage consumption among children.
