  1. Note. QOL = quality of life; PA = physical activity; FV = fruit and vegetable intake; PCS = physical component summary for SF-12; MCS = mental component summary for SF-12; MET = metabolic equivalent.
  2. * 'high' refers to the participant's value for PA, FV or TV/video was greater than 0.5 SD above the cohort mean for the respective variables; 'low' refers to the participant's value for PA, FV, or TV/video was less than 0.5 SD below the cohort mean for the respective variables.
  3. Participants were classified as 'average' if their values for PA, FV, and TV/video were all within 0.5 SD from the corresponding cohort means.
