  • Fisher’s exact was test used for all comparisons. Superscripts a and b that differ from one another denote significant differences between low, medium, and high picky-eating trajectories proportionally represented by the row and/or column trajectory. Superscripts c and d that differ from one another denote significant differences between trajectories of each type in proportion represented by the column trajectory of picky eating.
