1 Dependent variable is consumption of regular soda or sugar-sweetened beverages (SSB) on an average day. All variables simultaneously entered; backward elimination of variables not statistically significant.

2 Dependent variable is consumption of fast-food meals (FFM) during an average week. All variables simultaneously entered; backward elimination of variables not statistically significant.

X = dropped out of the model

Statistically significant at the level of: * p < 0.05 ** p < 0.01 *** p < 0.001
