Notes: BMI, body mass index; CI, confidence interval. Results of backward linear and logistic regression analyses with BMI z-score and overweight as dependent variables, respectively. The analyses were corrected for BMI z-score/weight status at age 5, and thus reflect development of BMI and weight status between ages 5 and 6–7, and between ages 5 and 7–8, respectively. All analyses were further adjusted for recruitment group; child gender and birth weight; and parental educational level, working hours, country of birth and BMI.
