Preventing Chronic Disease | Identifying Sources of Children™s Consumption of Junk Food in Boston After-School Programs, April"May 2011 - CDC CDC  child  schools  nutrition  food quality  Preventing Chronic Disease  PCD  food services  Child care  snacks  junk food  energy intake 

Little is known about how the nutrition environment in after-school settings may affect children’s dietary intake. We measured the nutritional quality of after-school snacks provided by programs participating in the National School Lunch Program or the Child and Adult Care Food Program and compared them with snacks brought from home or purchased elsewhere (nonprogram snacks). We quantified the effect of nonprogram snacks on the dietary intake of children who also received program-provided snacks during after-school time. Our study objective was to determine how different sources of snacks affect children’s snack consumption in after-school settings.
