In 2–18 year olds, grain desserts (cakes, cookies, donuts, pies, crisps, cobblers, and granola bars) are the top source of energy (138 kcal/day), the second major source of solid fats (43 kcal/day from solid fat), and the third major source of added sugars (40 kcal/day from added sugars) with dairy desserts being the fourth major source of added sugars (29 kcal/day from added sugars) ( Reedy & Krebs-Smith, 2010 ).
