How Food Away From Home Affects Children’s Diet Quality
by Lisa Mancino
Paperback, 33 pages, 2010, $25.00
ISBN: 1437940846

“This study includes estimates of how each child’s consumption of food away from home, food from school, and caloric sweetened beverages affects that child’s diet quality and calorie consumption. Compared with meals and snacks prepared at home, food prepared away from home increases caloric intake of children, especially older children. Each food-away-from-home meal adds 108 more calories to daily total intake among children ages 13-18 than a snack or meal from home. Both food away from home and all food from school also lower the daily diet quality of older children. Among younger children, the effect of food from school on caloric intake and diet quality does not differ significantly from that of food from home.”
