  • The relative risk ratio is represented by RRR, the SE by the significance by p Value. The level of significance was set at p<0.05 and bold indicates significant results.

  • Adjusted for age, sex, ethnicity, socioeconomic position and mother's and father's body mass index.

  • *Note: 0=Normal to normal (referent), 1=normal to overweight/obese, 2=overweight/obese to overweight/obese, 3=overweight/obese to normal.
