a Odds ratio of high versus low consumption among those living at ‘other’ accommodation compared to students living at parental home, adjusted for all country/sex combinations, separate models for each food group.

* Frequent consumption defined as: several times a day/daily.

Frequent consumption defined as: several times a day/daily/several times per week.
