  1. MVPA: Moderate-to-vigorous physical activity; SED: sedentary time.
  2. *Adjusted for sex, skin colour, family income at birth, maternal schooling at birth, birth weight, socioeconomic status at 30 years, schooling at 30 years, smoking at 30 years, and daily energy intake at 30 years.
  3. **Adjusted also for moderate-to-vigorous physical activity/sedentary time at 30 years.
  4. Socioeconomic status at 30 years is the covariate with more missing data.
