We observed fourth-grade children eating school meals, collected 24-hour dietary recalls about what they had eaten, and calculated measures of reporting error. Using the common factor extracted from four subject-area achievement tests as a measure of cognitive ability, we found that as cognitive ability increased, dietary reporting error decreased.
