Supplementary notes

Sample weights designed for dietary analysis were used to allow estimates representative of the U. S. population for the years of collection.
The statistics in this table are estimated from Day 1 dietary recall interviews conducted in the What We Eat in America, National Health and Nutrition Examination Survey (NHANES) 2015-2016.
The 24-hour dietary recalls were conducted in-person, by trained interviewers, using the USDA 5-step Automated Multiple-Pass Method. Food intakes were coded and nutrient values were determined using the USDA Food and Nutrient Database for Dietary Studies 2017-2018 www.ars.usda.gov/nea/bhnrc/fsrg.
Intakes of nutrients and other dietary components are based on the consumption of food and beverages, including water, and do not include intake from supplements or medications.
The table includes data from individuals 2 years and over. Breast-fed children were excluded because breast milk was not quantified in dietary recall interviews.
