Abstract

IntroductionCurrently, around one in three US children is overweight or obese . Obese children are more likely to have risk factors for cardiovascular disease, such as high cholesterol or high blood pressure , and are more likely to become obese adults, hence at higher risk for non‐communicable diseases . Obesity increases in recent decades have been attributed to a number of factors, including consuming food outside the home, increased portion sizes, increases in intake of sugar‐sweetened beverages (SSBs) and increases in snacking behaviours . There are growing concerns about the types of food and beverages consumed as snacks, and the amount of energy snacking provides. A recent review of snacking patterns among children and adolescents highlighted the lack of data describing snacking trends in the US population, and available data were not recent enough to understand what effects snacking may be having on current energy intake in US children .Research over the last 5 years has suggested a plateauing of obesity levels in children and adolescents and a decline in energy intakes of US households with children . It is important to examine whether declines in snacking behaviour are also occurring. One study examining long‐term trends of snacking behaviours in
