  1. CI confidence interval, LPA light-intensity physical activity, MVPA moderate-to-vigorous physical activity
  2. Data are presented as mean for continuous variables and percentages for categorical variables
  3. aData were not significantly different between boys and girls (all p > 0.05)
  4. bDefined according to the World Health Organization criteria [24]
  5. cPhysical activity was based on accelerometer data, and screen time and sleep duration were parent-reported
  6. EUse with caution (coefficient of variation >16.6%)
  7. FToo unreliable to be published (coefficient of variation >33.3%)
