|Table 3: Logistic regression analyses for association between ethnic background and overweight (obesity included) among 5 year olds, after adjustment for confounders and mediators ().|
|OR: odds ratio; CI: confidence interval.|
Model 2: ethnic background of the child + gender of the parent, educational level of the parent, and family situation + parental overweight (overweight (obesity included) = BMI ≥ 25 (kg/m2)) .
