  1. Note Standardized effects, both non-adjusted and adjusted for each other, of certain predictors (child characteristics and parental characteristics) on the Lifestyle Behavior Checklist factors: Overeating , Physical Activity, Emotional correlates related to being overweight, Misbehavior in relation to food, Screen Time and the Confidence scale, as well as R 2 = proportion explained variance (when including all predictors simultaneously)0. ns = non-significant = set to zero in the model; p < 0.05; *p < 0.001; athe predictor is binary, the effects stand for the difference in the outcome, in SD, between the two groups0.
