A Workshop on Strategies to Limit Sugar-Sweetened Beverage Consumption in Young Children: Evaluation of Federal, State, and Local Policies and Programs will be held on June 21-22, 2017 at the National Academy of Sciences Building in Washington, DC.

The objectives of this 1½ day workshop include:

  • Provide an overview of current and emerging strategies to reduce consumption of sugar-sweetened beverages by young children, ages 0-5 years of age, and explore the evidence on effectiveness.
  • Contextualize the strategies by considering patterns and trends in beverage consumption broadly, and sugar-sweetened beverage consumption specifically, in U.S. children.
  • Examine current guidelines for beverage intake applicable to children five years of age and younger.
  • Explore the role of industry in sugar-sweetened beverage intake in young children.
  • Identify where knowledge gaps and opportunities exist for future policies, programs, and strategies.  

This workshop is free and open to the public, but registration is required. Registration will remain open until we have reached capacity. The workshop will also be webcast.

More details, including a finalized agenda, will be posted to this page closer to the meeting date.
