As a myriad of health risks are associated with sugary drink consumption, strategies to help young children build healthy beverage habits need to be implemented in all of the places they spend time. Crucial to this effort is a strong body of evidence that shows the best approaches and policies to help families make healthy drink choices.
Healthy Eating Research, an RWJF national research program, is funding $2.1 million toward on actions and strategies to help young children consume fewer sugary drinks and more water.
Proposals for studies that focus on lower-income and racial and ethnic minority populations that have the highest rates of sugary drink consumption will be prioritized.
