Social determinants of sugar-sweetened beverage consumption in the Longitudinal Study of Indigenous Children

Katherine Thurber, Nasser Bagheri and Cathy Banwell
Family Matters No. 95, 2014

The benefit of reducing children's sugar-sweetened beverage consumption is unequivocal, and this is particularly true for Indigenous children in Australia, who consume a higher quantity of sugar-sweetened beverages than non-Indigenous children. However, the development of effective policies and programs requires an understanding of the drivers of this behaviour. This article investigates these drivers, using data from the Longitudinal Study of Indigenous Children (LSIC).
