Erratum: RESULTS BY EXPOSURES—5.2. Foods.

The associations between food, nutrition, physical activity, and the risk of weight gain, overweight and obesity: a systematic review of the epidemiological evidence

The Original Article was published on 13 July 2009

Correction to: International Journal of Obesity (2009) 33, S13–S27; doi:10.1038/ijo.2009.85

Since the publication of IJO (2009) Volume 33, Supplement 3, the authors have identified an error in this paper:

On page S26, the second paragraph in the left-hand column should read (revised text in bold):

‘In a cohort of American (mainly white and low income) preschool children (n =1345 were participants from the original North Dakota WIC Program cohort), followed up over 8.4 months, Newby et al.51 assessed (using an FFQ) the consumption of milk (oz per day). Weight gain/increased BMI was not related to milk intake at baseline.’

The authors would like to apologize for this mistake.
