Abstract

Consuming large amounts of sugary beverages has been related to developing obesity, diabetes mellitus type II and other chronic diseases. KiGGS Wave 2 (2014-2017) provides data on the consumption of sugary soft drinks in the 3-17 year age group in Germany. Overall, 13.7% of girls and 17.6% of boys consume one to three times a day sugary soft drinks and 3.3% of girls and 4.7% of boys four or more times. Consumption frequency increases with age and is higher among children and adolescents with low socioeconomic status (SES) than for those of the same age with high SES. The share of adolescents who drink sugary soft drinks daily has decreased since the KiGGS baseline study (2003-2006).Peer Reviewe
