Proposed Project: Influences on Child Beverage Consumption Survey—New—National Center for Chronic Disease Prevention and Health Promotion (NCCDPHP), Centers for Disease Control and Prevention (CDC).
Overweight and obesity have become a serious problem in the United States among children as well as adults (The Surgeon General's Call to Action to Prevent and Decrease Overweight and Obesity, 2001). As a result, children are experiencing a higher incidence of obesity-related diseases, such as type 2 diabetes, and are at increased risk for high blood pressure and elevated lipid and insulin profiles. In recent years, a growing number of researchers have recognized the potential impact of beverage consumption on this problem. This survey will provide information on parental influences on children's beverage consumption. A nationally-representative sample of 1,690 parents or guardians of children between the ages of 3 and 7 will be questioned by telephone using a computer-assisted telephone interviewing (CATI) methodology. The respondents will be asked about their young children's beverage consumption, and their own related behavior, knowledge, and attitudes. This one-time survey is expected to take place over 2 to 3 months. There is no cost to respondents.
