It is estimated that children in the United States ingests three times as many calories from sugar-sweetened beverages as the amount provided in the research trial. It is hypothesized and recommended that the decreased consumption of such beverages could possibly reduce the amount of overweight and obese children. MY ASSESSMENT Ruyter et al, assessed and conducted research that illustrates the importance of and the need to explore and continue research on childhood obesity. Although their research was limited to Amsterdam, the research is definitely relatable to the United States and how we can support and make minor changes that are beneficial to our children.
