BACKGROUND Physical activity data in children and adolescents who differ in body size and age are influenced by whether physical activity is expressed in terms of body movement or energy expenditure. OBJECTIVE We examined whether physical activity expressed as body movement (ie, accelerometer counts) differs from physical activity energy expenditure (PAEE) as a function of body size and age. DESIGN This was a cross-sectional study in children [n = 26; (+/-SD) age: 9.6 +/- 0.3 y] and… CONTINUE READING
