Figure 1. From: Relationship between Child Health Literacy and Body Mass Index in Overweight Children.

On simple bivariate analyses, there was a weak negative correlation between child STOFHLA and child BMI Z-score, r=−0.37, p=0.0009 (Figure 1) and a weaker positive correlation between child STOFHLA and parental STOFHLA (r=0.22, p=0.05). Child BMI Z-score increased with parental BMI (r=0.32, p=0.004) and decreased with child age (r=−0.37, p=0.0009). There was no relationship between child BMI Z-score and ethnicity, insurance status, gender, and child or parent eating self-efficacy (all p values >0.49).
