Demographic Characteristics and Dietary Intake of SSB Consumers Versus Nonconsumers (n = 4283)
↵a P values determined by using χ2 and independent t test.
↵b Weight classification based on the International Obesity Task Force BMI reference cutoffs.22,23
↵c Salt equivalent (1 g = 390 mg sodium).
Multiple Linear Regression Analyses of Fluid Consumption (g/d) and Dietary Salt Intake (g/d) in Australian Children Aged 2 to 16 Years, by Gender and Age Group (n = 4283)a,b
MVPA, moderate to vigorous physical activity.
↵a In all models: dependent variable = fluid consumption (g/d) and independent variable = salt intake (g/d).
↵b All models are statistically significant P < .001.
↵c Completed within subsample of participants with physical activity data available.
↵d Analysis not completed in 2- to 3-year-olds because physical activity (PA) was not measured in this age group.
↵* P <.01.
↵** P <.001.
Multiple Linear Regression Analyses of SSB Consumption (g/d) and Dietary Salt Intake (g/d) Within Consumers of SSBs (n = 2571)a,b
↵a In all models: dependent variable = SSB consumption (g/d) and independent variable = salt intake (g/d).
↵c Completed within subsample of participants with physical activity data available (n = 1511).
↵** P value <.001.
Association Between SSB Consumption and Weight Status (Healthy Weight Versus Overweight/Obese) in Australian Children Aged 2 to 16 Years (n = 4072)a,b,c
↵a In all models, dependent variable is “healthy weight” versus “overweight/obese,” and independent variable is number of servings (250 g) of SSB.
↵b Underweight participants (n = 211) have been excluded from this analysis.
↵c All models statistically significant P < .001.
↵d Includes only those participants aged 5 to 16 y where physical activity data were available (n = 2180).
