Table 5 Logistic regression model a of parents who are not able to correctly identify overweight in general and parents who did not matched their child’s silhouette correctly

From: Child-caregivers’ body weight and habitual physical activity status is associated with overweight in kindergartners

Variables ORb 95% CI for ORc P*
Step 1: Sex    
Boy 1.86 1.21 - 2.86 0.047
Girl 1.00   
Step 2: Weight status    
Own child is overweight 1.79 1.02 – 3.12 0.040
Own child is of normal weight 1.00   
Step 3: Associated health risks    
Incorrect identification of physical health risks associated with overweight 1.75 1.06 - 2.88 0.027
Correct identification of physical health risks associated with overweight 1.00
