Table 16. Estimated Regression Coefficients for Foods Predicting Cup Equivalents of Total Fruits and Vegetables Including Legumes and Excluding French Fries by Sex

For cup equivalents of fruits and vegetables including legumes and excluding French fries, the model is:

E (Fruits and Vegetables, no fries) = b0+ b1Kid + b2Teen + b3NFG3P3 + b4NFG4P4 + b5NFG5P5 + b7NFG7P7 + ... + b12NFG12P12

The estimates of the regression parameters are:
