According to a new study, almost 40 percent of the kids' calorie consumption comes from solid fat and added sugars.
These "empty calories," mainly in soda, pizza and desserts, are a big part of the obesity epidemic and putting kids at risk for developing weight-related illnesses, such as diabetes and heart disease.

Half of the kids' empty calories came from these six foods: soda, fruit drinks, dairy desserts, grain desserts, pizza and whole milk.
