Kalakanis, Lisa E.; Goldfield, Gary S.; Paluch, Rocco A.; Epstein, Leonard H.
Research Quarterly for Exercise and Sport, v72 n3 p202-209 Sep 2001
Investigated the level and pattern of moderate-to-vigorous physical activity (MVPA) in obese children, examining predictors of their activity. Children and their parents wore accelerometers for several days and provided demographic data. Parental activity levels significantly and independently predicted and improved the prediction of children's physical activity levels and number of bouts of MVPA (but not duration of MVPA). (SM)
