Figure 1.

Adjusted odds ratio for children to consume a diet that trends toward meeting intake recommendations when female/male HH consumed a diet that trended toward meeting her/his recommendation. Circle represents 2-5 year olds, Large diamond represents 6-11 year olds, Square represents 12-18 year olds, Models correct for household size, head of household's (HH) age, HH's education level (less than high school (referent), high school, more than high school), ethnicity (not Hispanic or Hispanic), and household income. Results for milk, whole grains, and dietary fiber must be interpreted with cautions due to excessively large 95% CIs. ORs for consuming a diet that trends toward meeting protein intake in preschoolers or iron recommendations in preschoolers and school-age children when the male HH consumed a diet that trended toward meeting his protein or iron intake recommendation could not be computed due to perfect prediction. Results are significant at P < 0.05 except for the odds of the female HH consuming a diet that trended toward meeting her recommendations and preschoolers consuming a diet that trends toward meeting theirs for total grains, protein, dietary fiber, calcium, iron, vitamin C, and vitamin B12 as well as school-age children for protein, iron and vitamin B12 or the male HH consuming a diet that trends toward meeting his recommendations and preschoolers consuming a diet that trends toward meeting theirs for total grains, saturated fat, dietary fiber, vitamin c and vitamin B12 as well as school-age children consuming a diet that trends toward meeting the recommendation for vitamin B12 recommendation and in teenagers the odds for consuming a diet that trends toward meeting the iron recommendation.
