A study of four classroom birthday parties showed that children consumed an average of 344 to 455 calories from sweets and other sugar-rich items. However, children ate fewer calories, an average of 259 to 405, when fruits were served alongside sugary treats. The findings, published in the Journal of Nutrition Education and Behavior, suggest that banning sugary treats from school birthday parties might curb childhood obesity, experts said.
