This is the VOA Special English HEALTH REPORT.

Researchers say American children now eat an average of three snacks a day between meals. A study found that those snacks add up to almost one third of all the daily calories eaten by children. And those extreme calories could help explain the rise in overweight children in the United States.

The study was done at the University of North Carolina at **. The researchers study the diets of thirty-one thousand children ages two to eighteen over a thirty-year period. They found that snacking has increased since the 1970s.

And what kind of the snacks had increased the most: softly high-fat food like chips. The study also found a greater snacking on cake, cookies and other treats that passed generations might have saved for after dinner.

The study is in the junior health affairs. Nutrition Professor Barry ** was the lead investigator. He says parents should limits snacks to ** day for children aged six and older. He also advices parents and caregivers to provide healthy snacks like fruits and vegetables.

Professor ** says American schools also need to improve their nutrition. For example, schools may have mending machines that offer what many people would consider junk food. There has been a push for schools to offer more healthful snacks and lunch choices and fewer sugary drinks.

Earlier this month coca-cola says it would stop selling sugary drinks in American schools unless parents request them. Its competitor ** just announced that they will stopped sales of sugared drinks to schools worldwide. America’s top public health officer wants to see more changes like this. Sergeant General ** Benjamin recently spoke to lawmakers about making healthy foods more available.
