  1. Note Correlations between the Lifestyle Behavior Checklist (LBC) factors (Overeating (OE), Physical Activity (PA), Emotional correlates of being overweight (EMO), Misbehavior in relation to food (MB) and Screen Time (ST)) and the Confidence scale (CONF) and the Child Feeding Questionnaire (CFQ) factors (Parental Responsibility (PR), Perceived Parent Weight (PPW), Concern about child weight (CN), Restriction (RST), Pressure to Eat (PE) and Monitoring (MN)). The factor Perceived Child Weight (PCW) was not included in the model.
  2. ns = non-significant = set to zero in the model; p < 0.05; *p < 0.001.
