Fatness, physical activity, and television viewing in children during the adiposity rebound period: the Iowa Bone Development Study.
TLDR
Low levels of vigorous physical activity and high levels of TV viewing are associated with fatness in young children during the adiposity rebound period, which suggests that increasing children's active play may be important in preventing obesity later in life. Expand
Measuring activity in children and adolescents using self-report: PAQ-C and PAQ-A.
TLDR
The PAQ-C andPAQ-A show good internal consistency, and the PAZ-A has acceptable validity, according to a longitudinally examined cohort of children at ages 11 and 13 yr. Expand
Tracking of activity and sedentary behaviors in childhood: the Iowa Bone Development Study.
TLDR
Sedentary behavior, including TV viewing, is moderately stable during middle childhood, and health promotion programs that specifically target maintaining high levels of vigorous activity and low levels of TV viewing may help reduce the increasing prevalence of childhood obesity. Expand
Prevalence of enamel hypoplasia and isolated opacities in the primary dentition.
TLDR
The prevalence of enamel defects in this study group is comparable to that seen in other studies of normally developed children except that the primary tooth types most commonly affected with enamel hypoplasia or isolated opacities were mandibular second molar and maxillary second molars, respectively. Expand
Factors related to utilization of dental services during pregnancy.
TLDR
There was limited knowledge of the possible relationships between oral health and pregnancy outcomes in a fairly homogeneous population of women who were of relatively high socioeconomic standing, so better education of the importance of dental care before and during pregnancy is needed. Expand
Changes in the prevalence of nonnutritive sucking patterns in the first 8 years of life.
TLDR
To intercept the development of crossbites and functional shifts, the developing occlusion should be observed in the deciduous dentition in children with prolonged digit or pacifier habits. Expand
Objectively measured physical activity trajectories predict adolescent bone strength: Iowa Bone Development Study
TLDR
Girls and boys who accumulated the most MVPA had greater bone mass and better geometry at 17 years when compared to less active peers when comparedTo discern if moderate-and-vigorous intensity physical activity (MVPA) predicts bone strength. Expand
Dental caries and childhood obesity: roles of diet and socioeconomic status.
TLDR
Cies and obesity coexist in children of low socioeconomic status and public health measures to improve dietary education and access to appropriate foodstuffs could decrease the risk of both diseases. Expand
Physical activity and bone measures in young children: the Iowa bone development study.
TLDR
There are statistically significant and, perhaps important, associations between physical activity and bone measures during early childhood, well ahead of the onset of peak bone mass, suggest that intervention strategies to increase physical activity in young children could contribute to optimal bone development. Expand
The roles of meal, snack, and daily total food and beverage exposures on caries experience in young children.
TLDR
The cariogenicity of food, but not beverages, is associated with the timing of exposure, and dietary methods used to investigate diet-caries relationships can influence the outcome. Expand
