Beschreibung

The prevalence of childhood obesity is increasing with its negative medical and psychosocial consequences. This paper examines the association between body mass index (BMI), motor abilities and leisure habits of 668 children within
the CHILT (Children?s Health InterventionaL Trial) project.
A total of 668 children (51.0% boys; 49.0% girls) and their parents were questioned on sport and leisure behaviour of
the children. The anthropometric data were measured. Motor abilities were determined by a body gross motor development test for children (Ko?perkoordinationstest fu?r Kinder; KTK) and a 6-min run.
Overweight/obesity is associated with a poorer body gross motor development and endurance performance. On the other hand, an active lifestyle is positively correlated with a better gross motor development in first-grade children.
Therefore, to prevent the negative consequences of physical inactivity and overweight/obesity early intervention to support exercise and movement is recommended.
