  1. N varies between 808 and 831.
  2. Est= estimate, C.I. = confidence interval.
  3. Multilevel generalized linear mixed model analysis, the estimates indicate the change in the dietary behaviors associated with: 1. an hour per week increase in TV/DVD use over 20 months.
  4. 2. an hour increase in television viewing at baseline.
  5. All changes are weekly changes.
  6. Adjustment for BL consumption of the respective food items, gender, weight status, parental education and change in computer/game use was done.
