The Expert Committee (EC) set recommendations on physical activity and sedentary behaviors for obesity prevention and treatment. The objective of this cross sectional, retrospective study was to determine associations between the youth's demographic, physical activity, and sedentary behaviors with weight status using the Child Nutrition and Physical Activity (CNPA) screener. The CNPA was given to patients at Rush University Pediatric Primary Care Center between 2012-2015 (n=2,230). Chi square analysis and Forward Wald logistic regression were conducted. Meeting EC recommendations for physical activity (0.60 OR (95% CI 0.45-0.81)) (p=.001), media time (0.76 OR (95% CI 0.57-0.996) (p=.047), no TV in bedroom (0.67 OR (95% CI 0.510.87)) (p=.002), and parent accurate weight perception (0.02 OR (95% CI 0.01-0.03)) (p<.001) decreased the odds of being overweight or obese. In conclusion, meeting the EC recommendations for physical activity and sedentary behaviors entered in to the model decreased the odds of being overweight or obese.
