Studies on Children. Another study by the same researchers,18 evaluated the relationship of portion size and other food behaviors to total energy intake among children 2 to 5 years of age who participated in the CSFII, 1994-1996, 1998. Energy intake was positively related to number of eating occasions, number of foods consumed, and portion size z-score (composite value for each child) for the most commonly consumed foods (milk, bread, soft drinks, cereal, juice, cookies, French fries, banana, peanut butter, and macaroni and cheese). In multiple regression models predicting energy intake, portion size as a single predictor explained the greatest amount of the variance in energy intake, suggesting portion sizes served to children influences their caloric intake.Studies on Children.
