|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.
