Collison, K. S., Zaidi, M. Z., Subhani, S. N., Al-Rubeaan, K., Shoukri, M., & Al-Mohanna, F. A. (2010). Sugar-sweetened carbonated beverage consumption correlates with BMI, waist circumference, and poor dietary choices in school children. BMC public health, 10(1), 234.
The research hypothesis was that the consumption of carbonated beverages that were sugar-sweetened increased the circumference of the waist and lead to poor choices in dietary in on boys than on girls. The study used a cross-sectional survey design whereby food frequency questionnaire was used. There were 5033 boys and 4400 girls who were within the age of 10 to 19 years participated in the study. Afterward, the circumference of the waist was measured and was tested against the intake of the dietary (Collison et al., 2010). If was found that the obesity prevalence among boys to the girl was 12.2% and 27.0% respectively. Thus the circumference of the waist was positively correlated with the carbonated beverages that were sugar-sweetened beverages on the intake of boys only and the results were valid. Therefore, the study is suitable for my research to in that it contributes to development of literature and background regarding dietary choices among children.
Colby, S. E., Johnson, L., Scheett, A., & Hoverson, B. (2010). Nutrition marketing on food labels. Journal of nutrition education and behavior, 42(2), 92-98.
The hypothesis of the study was food labels may help customers when selecting foods that contain low saturation of fats and sugars. A ross-sectional survey was conducted where all items were packed in selected food stores were evaluated. These items were labels up to 56900 and the nutrition was surveyed. Colby et al., (2010) explained that 49% of the products had marketing nutrition and the other 48% contained both the marketing nutrition that was highly saturated with fats and sugars. Study findings were valid and verifiable. It was concluded that industry symbols were not helpful in ensuring that customers could easily choose low fats and low sugar foods. This is significant to my research in that it contributes to the explanation of what influences decision making in regard to choice of foods among children.

The hypothesis was that there was a relationship between consumed sugars and Attention Deficit Hyperactivity Disorder of hyperactivity among school children. A cross-sectio
Children require different types of diets as they grow up. Every stage of development requires a specific type of diet to enhance
There a strong relationship between nutrition and brain development. High intake of poor diet during the earlier years in children leads to anxiety and depression in later years. It also increases emotional and behavioral problems. However, healthy diets such as vegetables, whole grains and fruits prevent children’s risk to for depression in later years. According to the U.S. Department of Agriculture (USDA, 2018), whole grains contains vitamins B, fiber and minerals that helps kids in school to concentrate in class. The government through the USDA started offering whole-grain rich food in school lunches after the enactment of the Healthy, Hunger-Free Kids Act in 2012. The problem now is that these rules have been relaxed and children and adolescents are back consuming sugary foods. Also most schools do not adhere to NLSP program expectations.
You need a Population Concerns section
Methods This should be Nutrition Relation Topics – what areas of your research are related to nutrition?
Next should be Nutrition Interventions – what studies were conducted?
The research methodology used in this nutrition research paper involved systematic reviews of various sources involving children, preadolescents and nutrition. Most of these studies were obtained from government agency databases such as United States Department of Agriculture (USDA), NHANES and other nutrition databases. The research studies reviewed were majorly conducted through Cross-sectional surveys, surveillance surveys and experimental designs. Data were obtained through admission of questionnaires an
