  • MVPA, moderate to vigorous physical activity.

  • a In all models, dependent variable is “healthy weight” versus “overweight/obese,” and independent variable is number of servings (250 g) of SSB.

  • b Underweight participants (n = 211) have been excluded from this analysis.

  • c All models statistically significant P < .001.

  • d Includes only those participants aged 5 to 16 y where physical activity data were available (n = 2180).
