Children’s physical activity and sedentary behavior is related between different parts of a day

29.11.2022

Dear Ciss Readers,

We would like to highlight a recently published, open-access CISS Article (you can find the full Article on our website https://bop.unibe.ch/ciss via Archives: Vol. 7, Article 002).

Please feel free to share it with interested colleagues.

It is unclear how different day parts are related to each other in terms of children’s physical activity (PA) or sedentary behavior (SB) and how moderators (sex, weight status or age) affect this. As many health interventions aim to increase PA and decrease SB, knowledge about same-day PA and SB patterns is important and related to practical implications.
Therefore, study aims were to identify: 1) children’s PA and SB relationship’s between parts of a day; and 2) moderators of these relationships. Participants (n = 1085) wore accelerometer for six days. Correlations between school-day and out of school (after school plus evening) moderate-vigorous PA (MVPA) and SB percent were calculated. Analyses were further stratified by sex, weight status, and age.
The results prove that children’s PA and SB is related between different day parts, independent of sex, weight status and age. Thus, promoting more PA and less SB for children at any part of the day is likely to positively affect PA and SB at other day parts.
