About

This indicator is the percentage of students in grades K to 5 who ate vegetables and fruit 5 times or more, on the day before the survey, based on their responses to 2 individual questions in the survey. Survey responses are provided by the parent.

Source

New Brunswick Health Council, New Brunswick Elementary Student Wellness Survey

Calculations

This indicator adds the responses to the following 2 individual questions: "Yesterday, how many times do you think your child consumed fruits, including fresh, cooked, frozen, canned or dried fruits? (Do not count: fruit juice, fruit roll-ups or other fruit flavoured candies.)" and "Yesterday, how many times do you think your child consumed vegetables, including fresh, cooked, frozen, or canned vegetables?". The response options for these 2 individual questions are: "none", "1 time", "2 times", "3 times", "4 times", "5 times", "6 times", "7 times or more" and "I do not know". This indicator is calculated by dividing the number of respondents who have a total of "5 times or more" by the number of respondents who answered at least 1 of the 2 individual questions.

Notes

The 2019-2020 edition of this survey was conducted during the COVID-19 pandemic. Since the number of schools that participated is much lower than other editions of the survey, results at the provincial level were deemed not representative of the total student population. Therefore, survey results for New Brunswick, health zones and demographic groups are not available for the 2019-2020 edition. However, results are available for communities in which the number of participating schools was deemed sufficient to be representative of the student population in that community.
