About

THIS INDICATOR HAS BEEN DISCONTINUED AND REPLACED WITH "SH_EHAFV_1". This indicator is the percentage of students in grades 6 to 12 who report eating five or more servings of vegetables or fruit the day before the survey, based on their responses to 4 individual questions in the survey.

New Brunswick Health Council, Student Wellness Survey - Grades 6-12

Calculations

This indicator adds the responses to the following 4 individual questions: 'Yesterday, how many servings of dark green vegetables did you eat? (e.g., lettuce, broccoli, green beans)', 'Yesterday, how many of dark orange vegetables servings did you eat? (e.g., carrots, squash, sweet potatoes/yams)', 'Yesterday, how many servings of other vegetables did you eat? (e.g., other raw or cooked vegetables, corn and boiled, baked or mashed potatoes; do not include: french fries or other fried potatoes)' and 'Yesterday, how many servings of fruit did you eat? (e.g., fresh, frozen, canned and dried fruits such as 100% fruit bars; do not include: fruit juice, Fruit Roll-ups® or other fruit flavoured candies)'. The response options for these 4 individual questions are: none, 1 serving, 2 servings, 3 servings, 4 servings, 5 servings and 6+ servings. This indicator is calculated by dividing the number of respondents who have a total combined response of '5 or more servings' by the number of respondents who answered at least 1 of the 4 individual questions.
