Wide Availability of High-Calorie Beverages in US Elementary Schools

Turner L and Chaloupka FJ. Archives of Pediatrics and Adolescent Medicine, 165(3):223-228, 2011.

The purpose of this paper is to examine the availability of beverages for sale in elementary schools. The study used data from US public and private elementary schools during the 2006-2007, 2007-2008, and 2008-2009 school years. Nationwide data on availability of beverages in schools have not been gathered since the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention conducted the School Health Policies and Programs survey in 2006, which was also the year of the Alliance beverage agreement with the American Beverage Association and the start of the federal wellness policy requirement. Our data provide up-to-date information on the availability of beverages in a nationally representative sample of elementary schools in the United States.
