Erratum to: Ethnic differences in BMI among Dutch adolescents: what is the role of screen viewing, active commuting to school, and consumption of soft drinks and high-caloric snacks?

The original article was published in International Journal of Behavioral Nutrition and Physical Activity 2009 6:23

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
figure1

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

Figure 2
figure2

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