Table 2 Logistic regression analysis: Odds ratios and 95 % confidence intervals for meeting the step count recommendations in children on weekdays and weekend days, separately for mother-child and father-child pairs included in the model (controlled for children’s and their parents’ age and overweight/obesity)

From: Weekday-weekend patterns of physical activity and screen time in parents and their pre-schoolers
