About

THIS INDICATOR HAS BEEN DISCONTINUED AND REPLACED WITH "SH_EHA03_1". This indicator is the percentage of students in grades 6 to 12 who report eating one or more servings of non-nutritious foods 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 french fries or other fried potatoes did you eat? (e.g., wedges, hash browns, poutine)', 'Yesterday, how many servings of snack chips did you eat? (e.g., potato chips, tortilla chips, corn chips, cheese sticks, or other snack chips)', 'Yesterday, how many servings of candy or chocolate bars did you eat? Include: Fruit Roll-ups® or other fruit flavoured candies, Gummie Bears®, suckers and sours' and 'Yesterday, how many servings of doughnuts, cookies, brownies, pies, frozen treats, cakes and other sweets did you eat? Include: ice cream, frozen yogurt, Popsicle®'. 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 '1 or more servings' by the number of respondents who answered at least 1 of the 4 individual questions.
