Correction

Since publication of our article [1] we have noticed an error. The arrows in figure 1 and 2 [2] from mediator variable to outcome variable and EBRBs and BMI respectively, are pointing in the wrong direction and the correct versions of the figures are now provided with this article.
Figure 1

Mediated relationship (according to Baron and Kenny [2]).

Figure 2

Energy balance-related behaviours (EBRBs) as a mediator variable of the relationship between BMI and ethnicity (Dutch versus Non-Western).
