Table 2 Summary of regression output for the relationship between fourth-grade children's body mass index (BMI) and participation in school-provided meals for Model 2Aa (n = 785 children) and Model 2Ba (n = 1,496 children)

From: How accurate are parental responses concerning their fourth-grade children's school-meal participation, and what is the relationship between children's body mass index and school-meal participation based on parental responses?

  1. a Model 2A included breakfast participation and lunch participation using parental response data from the two studies that asked about both usual breakfast participation and usual lunch participation. Model 2B included breakfast participation (but not lunch participation) using parental response data from all four studies.
