the interaction term (time*parental education) is the independent variable.

cmod = effect of parental education on the changes in FV intake over time; c'mod = effect of parental education on the changes in FV intake over time adjusted for changes in the mediator; amod = effect of parental education on the changes in the mediators over time; bmod = association between mediators and FV intake when adjusted for the moderator; abmod = mediated effect of mediators on the effect of parental education on the change in FV intake over time. SE, standard error. All analyses are adjusted for clustering effects and time, gender, parental education and treatment condition. ‡ p < 0.10; *p < 0.05; **p < 0.01; ***p < 0.001
