Syrup, hash browns, rice, spaghetti, and chips were overestimated by more than 5 g/serving. Statistically significant underestimation of carbohydrate content was observed for 8 out of 32 foods in the quiz, with cereal, French fries, and soda underestimated by more than 5 g. Overall, carbohydrate accuracy for an average breakfast was +7.2 ± 15.1 g; lunch was –7.9 ± 16.7 g; dinner was +3.8 ± 17.3 g, and accuracy for average daily snacks was +0.8 ± 13.6 g.
