Table 19. Estimated Regression Coefficients for Foods Predicting Cup Equivalents of Total Vegetables Including Legumes and Excluding French Fries by Sex

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

E (Vegetables, no FF) = b0+ b1Kid + b2Teen + b5NFG5P5 + b7NFG7P7 + b8NFG8P8 +... + b12NFG12P12

The estimates of the regression parameters are:
