Unstandardized beta coefficients reporting the association between televiewing at 29 months and an increase in televiewing between 29 and 53 months and fitness indicators in middle childhood
Model 1 Model 2
Independent variables Standing long jump (Grade 2) Waistline (Grade 4)
1. Early televiewing (hours per week) -.361 c [−.576, -.145] .009 [−.005, .073]
2. Increase in televiewing (hours per week) -.285 b [−.436, -.134] .047a [.001, .094]
Adjusted R square .101 .441

Note. The regression for Model 1 is adjusted for child sex, family income, weight for gestational age, overeating and weekly participation in physical activity at 29 months, and age in months and weight status (coded as 0 = normal weight and 1 = overweight) in the second grade. The regression for Model 2 controls for maternal BMI, immigration status, and level of education, and child age in months and weight status in the second grade.

a = p < .05., b = p < .01. c = p < .001.
