  1. Abbreviations: MVPA, moderate-to-vigorous physical activity; BMI, body mass index; SES, socio-economic status. All analyses were adjusted for sex, age, BMI-z score and SES and the effects of clustering by school. β values are logged therefore cannot be interpreted in the unit values of the variable.
