  1. Note. Positive values for correlations between mothers and fathers imply resemblance in high levels of consumption: high values for fruit/vegetable consumption are a positive health behavior, whereas high values for fast food and sugar sweetened beverage consumption are a negative health behavior. Values close to zero indicate low levels of resemblance between mothers and fathers. *p < 0.05
