NOTES: NSLP = National School Lunch Program; SBP = School Breakfast Program; SNDA-III = third School Nutrition Dietary Assessment study; y = years. The bold font in the columns for the NSLP participants show the range for the percentage of the day’s calories consumed at lunch, and the bold font in the columns for the SBP participants show the range for the percentage of the day’s calories consumed at breakfast.

aThe percentages that are based on recall data represent the percentages of calories from eating occasions that occurred during specified time periods, following rules developed for the School Nutrition Dietary Assessment study (USDA/FNS, 2007a).

bThe percentages of student-defined values represent the percentages of calories from eating occasions that the students defined as breakfast, lunch, dinner, and snacks.
