Abstract: ERS researchers compared eating occasion coverage in the American Time Use Survey and the supplemental Eating and Health Module (ATUS-EHM) to that in the National Health and Nutrition Examination Survey. They found that although the ATUS-EHM does not capture all eating occasions, the survey does appear to capture those that last the longest and that contribute the most to daily calorie intake.
