Table 13. Estimated Regression Coefficients for Sum of Foods Predicting Square Root Cup Equivalents of Total Fruits & Vegetables Excluding French Fries, by Age Group & Sex

For MyPryamid cup equivalents of fruits and vegetables, estimation of b0 and b1, the model is:

E ([Fruits and Veg]1/2) = b0+ b1([NFG1P1 + NFG2P2+... + NFG10P 10]1/2)

For MyPyramid cup equivalents of fruits and vegetables, including and excluding French fries, for each sex, the estimates of the parameters are:

Parameter Men/Boys Women/Girls
Children/Adolescents - Summary Variable including French fries
Intercept (b0) 0.462571 0.392334
b1 0.811789 0.854302
Children/Adolescents - Summary Variable excluding French fries
Intercept (b0) 0.477569 0.410229
b1 0.799521 0.839937
Adults - Summary Variable including French fries
Intercept (b0) 0.569237 0.475853
b1 0.811703 0.835344
Adults - Summary Variable excluding French fries
Intercept (b0) 0.578786 0.482116
b1 0.805061 0.831300
