  1. Note: B = unstandardized coefficient of regression. SE = Standard Error. all regressions controlled for child sex, age, and z-BMI. aPortion size was coded as −1 for the smallest portion, 0 for the medium portion, and 1.5 for the big portion; Rating was a binary variable capturing the difference between anticipated and experienced ratings (coded as 0.5 for anticipated ratings and − 0.5 for experienced ratings); Food was a binary variable capturing the difference between the two foods (coded as 0.5 for applesauce and − 0.5 for brownie) bindicates that the variable was mean-centered; ** indicates that the coefficient is statistically different from zero at p < 0.01 (* at p < 0.05)
