This analysis aimed to examine the association between intake of sugars (total or added) and nutrient intake with data from a recent Australian national nutrition survey, the 2007 Australian National Children's Nutrition and Physical Activity Survey (2007ANCNPAS). Data from participants (n 4140; 51 % male) who provided 2×plausible 24-h recalls were included in the analysis. The values on added sugars for foods were estimated using a previously published ten-step systematic methodology. Reported… CONTINUE READING

Reported intakes of nutrients and foods defined in the 2007ANCNPAS were analysed by age- and sex - specific quintiles of % energy from added sugars ( % EAS ) or % energy from total sugars ( % ETS ) using ANCOVA .

In general , higher intakes of added sugars were associated with lower intakes of most nutrient - rich , ' core ' food groups and higher intakes of energy - dense , nutrient - poor ' extra ' foods .
