  • * P ≤ .05. Asterisks refer to significance of multiple linear regression coefficients (ß).

  • Regression equation also adjusted for: parent's NKAN; number of nights per week parents prepared quick and easy suppers that their children would eat without fussing; child's age; child's sex; mother's education; mother's work; number of parents in household; and family income.
