  1. All calculations incorporated the complex design of the sample. L Based on analysis of factors with the frequency of consumption - times / day. Difference1. Crude difference between the frequency of day and year: 2015–2010. Difference2. Difference adjusted for sociodemographic variables between frequency / day and year: 2015–2010; Covariables used for adjustment in children, sex, age, nutrition status (based on BMI), food security, region, ethnicity, area and wealth index. Covariables used for adjustment in adults, sex, age, marital status, food security, region, schooling of the head of household, ethnicity, area and wealth index
