  • Description:

    To examine associations of adolescent sugar-sweetened beverage (SSB) intake with parent SSB intake and parent- and adolescent-knowledge of SSB-related health risks.


    Quantitative, cross-sectional.


    2014 SummerStyles survey.


    990 parent and adolescent (12–17 y) pairs.


    The outcome was self-reported adolescent intake (0, >0 to <1, or ≥1 time/d) of SSBs (soda, fruit drinks, sports/energy drinks, other SSBs). The exposures were self-reported parent SSB intake (0, >0 to <1, ≥1 to <2, or ≥2 times/d) and parent and adolescent knowledge of SSB-related health risks (weight gain, diabetes, and dental caries).


    Separate multinomial logistic regression models were used to estimate adjusted odds ratios (aOR) for adolescent SSB intake ≥1 time/d (ref: 0 times/d), according to 1) parent SSB intake, and 2) parent- and 3) adolescent-knowledge.


    About 31% of adolescents consumed SSBs ≥1 time/d, and 43.2% of parents consumed SSBs ≥2 times/d. Adolescent and parent knowledge that SSB intake is related to health conditions ranged from 60.7% to 80.4%: weight gain (75.0% and 80.4%, respectively), diabetes (60.7% and 71.4%, respectively), and dental caries (77.5% and 72.9%, respectively). In adjusted models, adolescent SSB intake ≥1 time/d was associated with parent intake ≥2 times/d (aOR=3.30; 95% CI=1.62–6.74), but not with parent or adolescent knowledge of health risks.


    Parental SSB intake may be an important factor in understanding adolescent behavior; knowledge of SSB-related health conditions alone may not influence adolescent SSB behavior.
