N varies between 801 and 835.
Est= estimate, C.I. = confidence interval.
Multilevel generalized linear mixed model analysis, the estimates indicate the change in the dietary behaviors associated with: 1. an hour per week increase in computer/game use over 20 months.
2. an hour increase in computer/game use at baseline.
All changes are weekly changes.
Adjustment for BL consumption of the respective food items, gender, weight status, parental education and change in TV/DVD use was done.
