Gender-specific associations between eating patterns and sedentary activities in Norwegian 12–13 year old schoolchildren

Sammendrag

Background and aims: Several sedentary activities (SA) have been related with eating patterns (EPs) in adolescents. The aim of this study was to investigate the gender specific associations between SA and EPs in a sample of 12-13-year-old Norwegian children. Methods: Respondents were recruited from primary schools in Telemark County in 2010. A parental-reported questionnaire with information on children’s dietary habits (retrospective FFQ) and daily time spent on SA outside school was used. Principal component analysis was used to identify EPs. The factor scores were grouped into tertiles. We used multiple logistic regression to calculate adjusted odds ratios (ORa) and 95% confidence intervals (CI) for being in the highest tertile of each EP (high adherence). All models were adjusted for physical activity (≥ 1 h/d MVPA), maternal education, family income and child overweight (objectively measured). Results: Complete data on diet and SA were obtained for 850 children (423 boys and 427 girls). Four EPs were identified and labeled “snacking”, “junk”, “varied Norwegian” and “dieting”, respectively. In boys, TV/DVD/video viewing ≥ 2h/day was related to high adherence to the ‘snacking’ EP (ORa=1.8, 95% CI: 1.1,3.0) while non-screen activities such as reading, homework/studying≥2h/day was related to low adherence to this EP (ORa=0.44, 95% CI: 0.24,0.83). In girls, PC use ≥ 2h/day was associated with high adherence to the “dieting” EP (ORa=2.6, 95% CI: 1.5,4.4), while non-screen SA ≥ 2h/day was associated with high adherence to the ‘varied Norwegian’ EP (ORa=1.7, 95% CI: 1.1,2.7). Conclusion: Gender specific associations between time spent on various SA and children’s EPs were observed. The findings indicate that measures aiming to improve children’s diet should be aware of different food behaviours in boys and girls related to different types of sedentary activities.
