  1. Behaviour scores can vary from 0 to 5 points where the higher the score, the more frequent the behaviour
  2. aMultivariable linear regression models examined differences in CEBQ scores (emotional overeating, food fussiness, food responsiveness and satiety responsiveness) across the six profiles. Covariates included parental sex, race/ethnicity, educational attainment as well as children’s age and sex. Significance level was set at 0.01, to account for the multiple comparisons and maintain an adequate balance between statistical power and Type I error rate
