The leading contributor of empty calories consumed by children and teens aged 2-18 years are calories from sugar sweetened beverages such as, sodas and energy drinks. In California, 21% of children and adolescents (2–17 years) report drinking at least one glass of soda per day, and 23% report drinking at least one glass of other sugary beverage (sweetened fruit, sport, and energy drinks) per day.
