OR: odds ratio, CI: confidence interval.
Model 1: ethnic background of the child + gender of the parent, educational level of the parent, and family situation.
Model 2: model 1 + parental overweight (overweight (obesity included) = BMI ≥ 25 (kg/m2)) [3].
aChange , , and change represent the respective changes in OR for children with a Moroccan, Turkish, Surinamese, and Dutch Antillean ethnic background relative to model 1, after adjustment for parental overweight ([ ]/[ ] × 100).
bChange , , and change represent the respective changes in OR for children with a Moroccan, Turkish, Surinamese, and Dutch Antillean ethnic background relative to model 2, after individual adjustment for lifestyle-related behaviors of the child ([ ]/[ ] × 100).
