Table 2 Odds ratios for “at risk of overweight, or overweight/obesity”a associated with meeting vs. not meeting the physical activity, screen time, and sleep duration recommendations and combinations of these recommendations in the full study sample (n = 803)

From: Proportion of preschool-aged children meeting the Canadian 24-Hour Movement Guidelines and associations with adiposity: results from the Canadian Health Measures Survey

  OR 95% CI p value
Meeting the following recommendations:
 At least PA 0.78 0.44–1.38 0.38
 At least ST 0.64 0.37–1.08 0.09
 At least SLEEP 1.52 0.75–3.05 0.24
 At least PA + ST 0.66 0.34–1.31 0.23
 At least PA + SLEEP 0.96 0.58–1.60 0.87
 At least ST + SLEEP 0.73 0.39–1.35 0.30
 All three recommendations 0.76 0.37–1.57 0.45
  1. CI confidence interval, OR odds ratio, PA physical activity, SLEEP sleep duration, ST screen time
  2. Models adjusted for age, sex, and highest household education
  3. Meeting the recommendations is defined as ≥180 min/day of physical activity (of which ≥60 min is moderate-to-vigorous physical activity), ≤1 h/day of screen time, and 10–13 h/day of sleep
  4. aDefined according to the World Health Organization criteria [24]. It was not possible to examine the overweight/obesity category only, as the numbers in that group were too low (8% of the sample)
  5. None of the odds ratios are statistically significant
  6. Physical activity was based on accelerometer data, and screen time and sleep duration were parent-reported
