All proposed studies in response to this CFP must have a clear impact on 0- to 5-year-olds and address one or more of the following topic areas (topics are not in any particular order). Also, all studies must have the potential to impact groups at highest risk for obesity and poor nutrition, such as black, Latino, American Indian/Alaska Native, Asian American, Native Hawaiian, and Pacific Islander populations, and children living in lower-income communities. RWJF is interested in research exploring the following topics:

  1. Ways to leverage federal, state, or local nutrition and food assistance policies
  2. Marketing practices and policies, including pricing, promotion, placement, and on-package labeling, etc.
  3. Messaging campaigns for discouraging SSB consumption and encouraging potable water consumption
  4. How changes to SSB and/or water consumption impact changes in overall beverage consumption patterns
  5. Settings with the greatest potential for decreasing SSB and increasing water consumption at the population-level
  6. Access to safe drinking water and/or perception of tap water safety

These priority topic areas emerged from a 6-month long project led by HER to develop a national research agenda to reduce the consumption of SSBs and increase access to and consumption of safe water among 0- to 5-year-olds.
