Abstract

Parent-offspring adiposity associations are well-established: offspring of obese parents have elevated risks of overweight/obesity. The aim of studies based on the 1958 British birth cohort has been to gain insights into explanations of these associations, such as whether parent-offspring BMI associations are due to offspring lifestyles or depend on socio-economic conditions.
